SASTM Method

How Does SASTM work?

Repetitive motion produces an inflammation process, which over time results in chronic pain. This inflammation process also produces scar tissue which creates muscular imbalances, resulting in decreased performance.

The SASTM method is a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. This method enables clinicians to effectively locate and treat areas of soft tissue dysfunction through the use of an instrument, thus preventing overuse of their hands. Instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves. This allows the clinician to locate and treat the affected area with the appropriate amont of pressure.
