What to Expect from IASTM in Urbandale

You may be curious about the role of tools in physical therapy. While traditional therapies rely on hand techniques, tools bring added benefits, such as effectively breaking down scar tissue and easing connective tissue restrictions. They also allow therapists to identify and address specific problem areas precisely.

IASTM-certified therapists tailor the pressure and speed of their techniques to your individual needs, focusing on stimulating or relaxing specific muscles.

IASTM intentionally triggers a mild inflammatory response in the targeted muscles, ligaments, or tendons. This controlled inflammation is essential for healing, accelerating recovery, and assisting your return to normal activities.

Moreover, IASTM is exceptionally effective in breaking down adhesions and scars resulting from surgeries, repetitive injuries, or lack of movement, facilitating functional rehabilitation.

  • Pain related to movement

Dr. Logan has been extremely helpful in my recovery. We have open communication and reasoning behind treatment. The one on one time has been great and not rushed like most places. My injuries have gone and I have the tools to continue getting better.
