IASTM for Scar Tissue: Restore Function and Reduce Pain from Old Injuries

Even after successful treatment, many health conditions can leave you with painful scar tissue and impaired or restricted movement. Runners, golfers, and many other people who live or work in Federal Way, experience ongoing pain and issues as a result of scar tissue. For some, a simple, effective treatment, IASTM, can bring lasting relief.

What is IASTM? Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

IASTM is a general term used for a treatment technique use to break down dysfunctional scar tissue that may accumulate after an injury. This hands-on technique utilizes specially designed tools to stimulate the breakdown and removal of scar tissue and the subsequent regeneration of new and healthy tissue such as in tendons, muscles, fascia and other soft tissue structures. The goal is to trigger an inflammatory healing response, this stimulates the production of new collagen and proper, more functional, less painful healing.

Benefits of IASTM Treatment

  • Decreases overall time of treatment

What You Can Expect from IASTM Treatment

Treatment is typically twice a week for several weeks and is combined with standard physical therapy. Your treatment may include a combination of manual therapy, strengthening, and education to prevent re-injury, all designed to help you achieve the highest quality of function. We will ask you to become an active participant in your rehabilitation program, which in most cases is equal in importance to your clinical treatment. One of the many benefits of IASTM treatment is that continuation of all normal activities, including exercise, is recommended during treatment, and promotes optimal healing conditions.
