Do You Wear Gloves?

Nitrile Treatment Gloves

Why do practitioners of IASTM wear blue treatment gloves?

IASTM aka “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization,” is a manual therapy approach to musculoskeletal injuries using specifically designed tools such as the M2T-Blade

The M2T-Blade is an all-in-one treatment tool use to detect and treat muscle pain and myofascial adhesions.

Our goal at the M2T-Blade is to provide world class education and knowledge and provide support to our registrants, practitioners, and customers.

One questions we always receive is about the validity and purpose of wearing gloves during an IASTM Treatment.

Here is our response:

4 Benefits to wearing nitrile gloves while performing IASTM

1) Facsial Tactile Feedback

With M2T-Blade - we always suggest to have one hand engaged with patient {free hand} and other hand on the tool to help with passive motion while performing IASTM Technique. Wearing gloves will allow free hand to engage fascia.

2) Grip Of Tool

Using cremes can be messy and slippery. Wearing gloves will allow better hold on the tool without slipping.

3) Cleanliness

4) Transfer between modalities and techniques

With the M2T-Blade, it is not a be all, end all. We suggest to incorporate other modalities like taping, cupping and Active Release. With using a tool and creme it may be tricker to transfer from modalities as hands will be full of lotion. Using gloves allow you to do multiple modalities with greater outcome.

M2T blade breaks down fibrous tissue, knotted muscles and scar tissue. This is a very safe and effective technique. Adhesions, fibrous tissue within the soft tissue which may have developed due to repetitive strain, immobilization, are broken down with IASTM to allow restoration of function.

What is the M2T-Blade?

nstrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization tools help health care practitioners like Chiropractors and Massage Therapists locate and break up scar tissue and adhesions in your soft tissue (or fascia). There are many tools available on the market. The most commonly known one is Graston. Melissa Doldron, one of the registered massage therapists at Rebalance Sports Medicine, uses the stainless steel M2T-Blade. This is one tool with 8 unique treatment edges (versus multiple tools used in Graston) and can treat any area of restriction on the body.

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.

Common Issues M2T Can Treat

  • Achilles, IT Band, Hip Flexor, Hamstring issues

  • Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Rotator Cuff tendinosis

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Scar Tissue

  • Shin Splints

M2T-Blade Published Research: Short term effects of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization on pain and activities of daily living in subjects with patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis

Screen Shot 2018-07-11 at 7.57.32 AM.png

M2T-Blade Published Research: Short term effects of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization on pain and activities of daily living in subjects with patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis

In November 2017, a research paper was published from KLE University on the short term effects of IASTM with the M2T-Blade on Osteoarthritis. 

Our major goal at the M2T-Blade is to provide a higher quality education and a better product so that practitioners and trainers can provide a higher quality of treatment to their clients. 

More about the research paper:

Aim: To study the effectiveness of Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization using M2T blade in Osteoarthritis of Patello-Femoral joint to reduce pain and improve Activities of daily living.

Objectives: To compare the effectiveness of M2T blade and conventional physiotherapy with Conventional physiotherapy alone on pain and activities of daily living in subjects with patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis.

Method: A Randomized controlled trial, 34 Patellofemoral osteoarthritis subjects were, divided in 2 groups. All the subjects were evaluated for Pain, Physical functioning of joints and the range of motion and outcome measures such as VAS, WOMAC and ROM which were noted on Day 1 of intervention and Day 7, both Pre and Post treatment. Results: Analysis was done using T-test, Subjects of Group A received M2T blade and Conventional physiotherapy showed significant improvement as compared to the subjects of group B which received Conventional physiotherapy only.

Conclusion: Present study concluded that M2T blade along Conventional Physiotherapy was effective in improving VAS, WOMAC and ROM as compared to conventional Physiotherapy group with patellofemoral osteoarthritis subject.
