SOUND ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION (SASTM)
Chronic pain may develop over time as a result of trauma to the body. Often, these tissue injuries result in the build-up of scar tissue, which not only creates pain but also restricts the body’s natural movement, as well as blood flow to the injured area. Without an adequate supply of blood being shuttled to the damaged tissue, weakness may develop, which can lead to a greater risk of injury reoccurrence.
To remedy this, SASTM is a system of tools and techniques used by many hospitals, universities, and professional sports teams that, unlike traditional massage therapy (which may take a long time to bring permanent results), allows for the root of the problem to be reached quickly and effectively. which are the second generation development of David Graston and his soft tissue techniques
These tools, which are the second-generation development of David Graston and his soft tissue techniques, lets the doctor gain a more in-depth feel of your underlying tissues, while allowing the healing process to begin by promoting the breakdown of scar tissue.
The following is a list of common diagnoses that may benefit from SASTM:
-IT Band Syndrome -Plantar Fasciitis
-Achilles Tendonitis -Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
-Tennis Elbow -Rotator Cuff Strain
-Chronic Muscle Sprain -Knee Pain
