Do osteopaths use IASTM?
Some osteopaths may treat patients using IASTM or instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilisation.
IASTM is a sort of treatment that manipulates soft tissue with the help of specialised devices to increase mobility, lessen discomfort, and hasten recovery. The method involves applying pressure to the skin and underlying soft tissue, using specially made devices with rounded or bevelled edges.
Improved mobility and function may be possible due to the pressure’s ability to break down scar tissue and other adhesions in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Osteopaths may incorporate IASTM into a thorough treatment plan for patients suffering from musculoskeletal problems.
