St. Luke’s rehab specialists are highly trained and certified by the state of Washington to provide instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization therapy (IASTM). IASTM is an evidence-based rehabilitation process for chronic tendonopathies and post-op/post-injury scar tissue.

Problems such as scarring, fibrosis and degeneration may develop as the result of trauma, surgery or repetitive strain. IASTM stimulates the body to regenerate soft tissues, decreases pain and improves movement. It is effective for new injuries as well as persistent, nagging conditions.

This therapy can help patients:

  • Reduce pain
  • Regenerate soft tissue
  • Improve mobility
  • Improve function
  • Achieve a faster recovery
  • Enhance their independence
