IASTM In Hallandale Beach

Our team of specialists uses instrument-assised soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). This is a manual form of physical therapy. Our physical therapists use special metal or plastic tools to gently scrape and move the skin to reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing.
IASTM is likely to be beneficial for you if you are living with a chronic or painful condition. We can help you learn more about this technique by scheduling an appointment with one of our physical therapists.

What Can I Expect From IASTM in Hallandale Beach?

It may seem strange to ask, “Why is it necessary to use tools in physical therapy?” Although manual therapy is done with the hands, there are many benefits to using instruments. These instruments can be used to effectively remove scar tissue and connective tissue restrictions. These instruments can also be used to aid physical therapists in finding and treating affected areas more accurately.

An IASTM-trained physical therapy therapist can use a variety of pressures and speeds to perform this particular technique. It will depend on your specific condition and needs. These pressures and speeds are used to either stimulate a contraction (also called turning a muscle on) or to inhibit it (also known as turning a muscle off).

A mild inflammatory response occurs when you apply pressure via IASTM to the affected muscles, ligaments, or tendons. Although it may seem counterintuitive at first, inflammation is a natural part of the body’s healing process. This allows you to recover faster and get back to your normal life.
It also helps to break down any adhesions and scars that may have developed due to an operation, repetitive injury or immobilization. IASTM helps to break down these scars, allowing functional restoration to take place.

It’s a year later and I returned to B3 for more sessions. This time my sessions were primarily with Quinton. Everyone I’ve had the pleasure of working with has been terrific. Special thanks to Quinton for his knowledge and care this past few weeks. From 1 to 10 I’d give them 11!
Last year:

Although so far, I’ve had only four sessions at B3, it follows my experience at another physical therapy place that felt like an assembly line. From the moment I walked in the B3 door, I have been treated like an individual . The assessment was extremely thorough and my treatment has been targeted for my specific issues. A bonus – the therapists couldn’t be nicer!

I ultimately decided to trust B3 for rehabilitation of my left pectoral after surgery because I had heard they have a hands-on staff, who dedicate an hour of undivided attention to you. I couldn’t be happier with the decision. I’ve been going now for about 5 weeks and my rehabilitation is going swimmingly. The staff are all extremely personable, kind, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend to family and friends, as I know they will receive the best care available at B3.
