Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy

Using curved instruments made to contour and conform to your body, this therapy massages your skin, muscles, and tendons to locate restrictions and treat the affected areas with the appropriate amount of pressure.

How does Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy work?

Instrument assisted soft tissue therapy locates soft tissue disorders—usually caused by surgery, immobilization, or repeated strain—then effectively treats fascial restrictions and scar tissue. To do this, our licensed chiropractors use contoured instruments made of stainless steel to massage your skin, muscles, and tendons using compressive stroke techniques. This creates microtrauma, which stimulates the healing process.

How does this process work?

We’re glad you asked! Before we get started, we’ll have you obtain a detailed health history from your doctor or therapist. During our first consultation, we’ll start by getting to know you—any health-related problems, needs, concerns, goals, and more. From there, we’ll perform an examination, do tests, and develop a working diagnosis. Depending on your condition, we usually start treatment right away! Together, we’ll create a management plan and monitor your progress, so you can get back to doing what you love most.
