ASTYM

With IASTM, physical therapists use plastic or metal tools to treat soft tissue problems such as scar tissue, restrictions, inflammation and degeneration. Providers glide and press these tools across and around the affected areas. This stimulates healing and breaks down soft tissue restrictions and scar tissue.

Studies have shown the clinical benefits of IASTM. The treatment can improve range of motion, strength and pain perception in patients.

DRY NEEDLING TREATMENT

Dry needling is a hands-on approach used by physical therapists to treat myofascial pain and soft tissue dysfunction. Our physical therapists have advanced training in the technique and theory behind dry needling.

We use dry needling to treat a variety of conditions. It can relieve muscle strains, back pain, neck pain and extended soreness in most regions of the body. It is most often used to treat pain or help athletes recover after training or competition.
