Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
IASTM, or “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization,” is a therapeutic approach to musculoskeletal injuries that uses specifically designed manual tools. At Pinnacle Chiropractic, Dr. Banks is certified in the use of Smart Tools. Smart Tools are comprised of stainless steel, which has been shown to be the most effective material for IASTM.
Smart Tools were developed to assist in the effective treatment of adhesions and scarring caused by surgeries, injuries, and muscle overuse. They are designed to assist medical doctors, osteopathic doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, massage therapists, and others to effectively treat patients. IASTM enables Dr. Banks to create a controlled inflammatory process, thereby allowing the tissue to begin the healing process, break down scar tissue/adhesions in the troubled area, and accelerate the recovery process.
