Soft tissue mobilization, which relies on manipulating the tissue around a muscle, can be used by chiropractors in treating a variety of physical issues, especially chronic pain after an injury. Along with alleviating pain, mobilization can help an individual to regain his or her range of motion and begin to build strength in a muscle again. IASTM, which stands for Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, aims to break up the scar tissue that tends to build up around a muscle after injury. This scar tissue develops naturally in reaction to the injury, but it can also make that part of the body less mobile. IASTM can be used for any number of physical complaints, including carpal tunnel syndrome, myofascial pain, plantar fasciitis, back pain, and strained muscles. If you suffer from any form of chronic physical pain, contact a chiropractor in Oak Ridge, TN, to learn how professional treatment can relieve your symptoms.
