Are you facing chronic pain? You need to hear about IASTM!

Grand Street Wellness Center uses instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization as a manual treatment for chronic pain (IASTM). Our physical therapists use a plastic or metal tool to scrape the skin. As a result, you will be less uncomfortable. You will also notice a reduction in inflammation and healing for the condition causing you pain.

Set up an appointment with one of our licensed physical therapists today to learn more about how this technique can help you. Grand Street Wellness Center is excited to meet you and, more importantly, to help you get rid of your pain once and for all.

What’s the purpose of IASTM?

During this procedure, an IASTM-trained physical therapist will use specialized devices to break down connective tissue restrictions as well as scar tissue. Various speeds and pressures are used depending on your requirements. When IASTM is used to apply specific pressure levels to the afflicted muscles, tendons, or ligaments, a minor inflammatory response occurs. This inflammation promotes the body’s natural healing mechanism, allowing you to recover and get back to living your best life faster!

IASTM has been shown to assist with the following issues:

  • Limited motion
  • Motor control issues
  • Pain with movement
  • Muscle recruitment issues
