Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
IASTM is a soft tissue therapy that is used primarily to break up adhesions and scar tissue that has formed under the skin and in the muscle tissue after an injury. Some of the advantages of IASTM are: decreased time of treatment, faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduced need for anti-inflammatory medicine, reduction of chronic conditions that were thought to be permanent. Dr. Tislau has received advanced training in Graston technique (a form of IASTM) to learn how and when to use IASTM effectively, with the goal of returning you to 100% as quickly as possible. Creekside Performance Center provides IASTM services as a stand alone treatment, or in conjunction with other treatments such as chiropractic adjustments, exercise, and other manual therapy.
