Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, often referred to as IASTM, is a technique that utilizes specially designed instruments to stimulate healing within chronically inflamed tissues, reduce scar tissue and help increase performance.

Active Release Techniques

Active Release Techniques® (ART)

This technique can treat headaches, back pain, plantar fasciitis and knee problems among other conditions. ART is a soft tissue, movement-based therapy that clinicians use to evaluate texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves.

Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation

Low load exercise combined with Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) combats one of the most problematic conditions occurring in rehabilitation: the loss of muscle in the injured limb during the inactive period after injury. This technique uses a specialized inflatable device on an exercising extremity to reduce blood flow to the area of the body.

myopain seminars

Dry Needling Technique

This treatment involves thin filiform needles to target and stimulate underlying trigger points, muscle tissue and connective tissue leading to reduced pain, tension and improved activity. The needles are “dry” because they contain no medication.
