Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a physical therapy technique similar to a standard massage, but involves specialized instruments in place of a physical therapist’s hands. Select Physical Therapy therapists use different tools to target a specific layer of soft tissue, helping to relieve stiffness and improve range of motion. This allows patients to perform exercises physical therapists recommend to strengthen the injured area, which promotes healing and restoring normal function.
