  • IASTM: Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a treatment for soft tissue dysfunction. Soft tissues could include muscle, scar, tendon, fascia and/or neurodynamic dysfunctions. The therapist utilizes an ergonomic tool to identify a restricted soft tissue and release it. Depending on the therapist's intention, the "release" may involve muscle inhibition, muscle activation, breaking down or remodeling of fibrosis/scar tissue, increasing blood flow to the affected area, and/or providing a novel stimulus that helps to change pain perception. Our clinics utilize Hawkgrips and Graston tools.
  • Running/gait analysis: A video running analysis can provide a runner with information that can help identify bio-mechanical faults, cadence frequency and breathing rhythm. Moreover, we combine data from the video analysis with a thorough review of your medical history, training program dosage, musculoskeletal evaluation and your goals. If necessary, recommendations are made to enhance gait efficiency, correct bio mechanical faults, improve strength, flexibility and training which can lead to improved performance and reduce the risk of injury.
