IASTM combines static and dynamic soft tissue manipulation with specially designed stainless steel tools.
The fascia is a thin connective tissue that covers our muscles, separating muscle groups and parts of our body.
The sliding of the fascia is disrupted after surgery, various injuries, improper posture of the body, which can cause pain, restrict movement and lead to the construction of compensatory mechanisms. Also, the fascia responds to various types of stress and dehydration by reducing its elasticity and shortening.
The soft tissue techniques of IASTM are applied on special points of fascial restriction, the release of which leads to improved functional status.
When the instruments come into contact with fibrous tissue, a slight vibrational sensation is transmitted, which guides the therapist exactly where the fascial restriction is.
In this way, the biomechanical function of various joints in the human body can be improved.
OKTO uses the IASTM technique to:
IASTM technique is an innovative technique used to treat musculoskeletal dysfunction.
With the tools of the IASTM technique, soft tissue restriction can be easily detected, muscle tone and pain can be reduced.
The IASTM technique is extremely effective in:
The technique is to be applied in combination with motion and strengthening program to enhance the tissues remodeling.
