IASTM Chiropractic Treatment
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) involves the use of a specifically designed stainless steel tool. Dr. Andrew is certified in level 1 Graston technique, but uses a different set of tools to accomplish the same benefit. The tools are contoured to glide smoothly over different body structures, which enables Dr. Andrew to effectively feel areas of scar tissue and fascial restrictions. By rubbing the tool over the injured area, it creates local inflammation that brings new blood to the area, helping the tissue to heal. The chiropractic Graston technique is extremely useful on areas of chronic inflammation and tendonitis.
