IASTM means Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. It is one of the greatest revolutions in the field of manual therapy.
Dr. Drashti Shah is the only physiotherapist in Gujarat to use IASTM technique and one of the very few to use the blade. She is a master in using IASTM & Taping Techniques. It feeds sensory system to improve motor output.
Benefits of IASTM
Chronic Fascial Adhesions cannot be physically deformed and changed without a tremendous amount of force to have chemical and mechanical changes in these hardened tissues simply using hands is not enough. IASTM offers a long-lasting solution for the above problems.
Blade Technique changes the neurological tone and decreases the perception of pain threat, which in turn allows desired rehabilitative neuro-muscular activities.
IASTM helps in detecting altered tissue properties and facilitates patients’ awareness of altered sensations.
It fastens pain reduction and increases functional mobility and convinces the nervous system to let you move farther.
It stimulates intra-fascial mechanoreceptor and helps in mechanotransduction.
IASTM can solve the followings:
