Advanced Chiropractic of Grove City
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Technique (IAST)

IAST is a safe, non-invasive treatment method that involves the use of stainless steel instruments to improve function and decrease pain related to acute and chronic conditions/injuries.  The techniques we utilize with these instruments are supported by the following rationale:
  • Decrease/break down scar tissue
  • Improve blood flow, enabling a natural healing response

    The stainless steel instruments that we use are contoured to adapt to the various shapes and curves of the human body.  These contours help us to prioritize patient comfort. 

    IAST can be useful in treating the following injuries/conditions:

    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Plantarfascitis
    • Heel pain
    • Epicondylitis
    • All forms of tendonitis (patellar, achilles, rotator cuff, etc.)
    • Shin splints
    • Post-surgical and traumatic scars
    • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
    • Bursitis
    • Compartment syndromes
    • ...and more!
