Functional Movement Analysis Before and After Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Functional Movement Analysis Before and After Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

This study examined the effects of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) on ankle range of motion in college athletes. The findings show that IASTM may be used as a performance enhancing tool that has the potential to temporarily increase range of motion and flexibility in college athletes.

The symptomatic and functional effects of manual physical therapy on plantar heel pain: a systematic review

The symptomatic and functional effects of manual physical therapy on plantar heel pain: a systematic review
Journal of Manual & Manipulative Therapy

Plantar heel pain is common and can be severely disabling. Annually, roughly two million patients spend $284 million on the evaluation and treatment of plantar heel pain in the United States. Nearly 10% of the population will suffer from plantar heel pain at some time in their life. There...

The Comparison of Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization and Self-Stretch Measures to Increase Shoulder Range of Motion in Overhead Athletes: A Critically Appraised Topic
Human Kinetics Journals

Shoulder range of motion (ROM) in throwing athletes relies on balance of mobility and stability to maintain proper function and health that, if disrupted, can lead to shoulder injury. In overhead athletes who have deficient shoulder ROM, is instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization more effective at acutely increasing ROM over the course of a patient's treatment when compared with self-stretching?

Instrument-assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Improves Physical Performance of Young Male Soccer Players
International Journal of Sports Medicine

This study aimed to examine the effects of a rehabilitation exercise combined with instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization on the isokinetic power, muscle fatigue, and fitness of soccer players.

Treating Lymphedema with Kinesiology Tape and IASTM Tools
Massage Magazine

The primary goal when treating lymphedema is to assist in the removal of excess fluid and cellular debris found in the tissues. Care must be taken to not exacerbate the issue. Unlike the circulatory system that has the heart to act as a pump, the lymphatic system relies on things like muscular contraction and osmotic pressure to help move fluid through its system of vessels to the actual nodes.

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization decreases pain intensity and fatigue perception after long-distance ironman triathlon
Physical Therapy in Sport

Background: The aim of this study was to compare pain intensity, fatigue perception and pain threshold between manual therapy group (MTG), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization group (IASMTG) and no intervention group (CG) on the recovery of triathlon athletes who finished long-distance ironman triathlon.
