RockBlades are specially designed tools used to apply longitudinal pressure along the course of the tissue in a technique knows as Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). Restricted or adhered myofascial tissue and/or scar tissue are the primary tissues addressed with its application. Once the area of restriction is found, the treating therapist will provide a gliding motion with a selected instrument over the treatment area to loosen any tissue that is limited in movement.
IASTM may be used in both human & animals to:
◦Provide mobilizing effect to soft tissue
◦Improve range of motion & function
◦Accelerate recovery time
