How Can IASTM Help Improve Pain and Mobility?
IASTM helps to break down that abnormal tissue and myofascial adhesions and get the body back to healing normally. IASTM restarts the healing process for the injured tissues by bringing blood flow and fibroblasts to the area.
Inflammation causes soft tissue thickening, which can also impede joint function.Soft tissue manipulation is a manual technique used to reduce pain, relax muscles, increase range of motion and restore strength. ... Soft tissue mobilization breaks down adhesions and stimulates tissue regeneration.
What makes the M2T-Blade different?
When soft tissue is not stretched enough (or sufficiently), or after an injury, it can become sticky and adhere to the surrounding muscles causing pain and soreness while also restricting movement and flexibility. Various massage treatment techniques help break up the tissue to promote proper regeneration and repair, but for cases of chronic scar tissue and adhesions using the M2T-Blade tool can help get effective results easier and save the therapist’s hands some excessive work. Using a tool focuses the force through a precise area, making the technique more specific than your finger and with less friction.
Combined with corrective mobility exercises and stretches to help strengthen the tissue that is being worked on, M2T is an effective tool for massage therapists to add to their arsenal and can benefit many clients.
The M2T-Blade is uniquely designed to assess and treat soft tissues while improving blood flow, decreasing pain, and increasing mobility around the joints.
Tools such as the M2TBlade, help in this process!
