Soft tissue mobilization is used to treat a number of problems. SASTM instruments are designed for treatment of soft tissue disorders. These remarkable instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue helping your body to heal and create more movement in the body. The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves. The unique design allows the clinician to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure, due to square surface of the instruments.
Trauma to soft tissue causes a local inflammatory response. This initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibers (scar tissue). During the treatment, the instruments breakdown scar tissue adhesions which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur. This allows your body to move properly and put less stress on your joints.
This form of treatment is beginning to be used by colleges like Stanford to increase their performance. To find out more about Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization check out this site
