IASTM is a soft tissue mobilization technique that regenerates good tissue by breaking up scar tissue that has formed after an injury, surgery, or illness. Scar tissue limits range of motion, causing pain and discomfort for patients.  By breaking up scar tissue, IASTM helps to alleviate pain and improve motion.
