Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
Injuries are often accompanied by muscular guarding and pain which can disrupt how we move. At Integrative Chiropractic and Wellness we utilize a manual therapy called Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). Injury to muscles can inhibit joint function, range of motion, and make it difficult to perform daily tasks. If not addressed, these issues can worsen and even result in long-term inflammation, leading to arthritis. Utilizing the IASTM technique, we can regain full mobility and improve the function of the injured tissue. The IASTM therapy applies the use of metal tools specifically designed to heal muscle, tendon, and ligament injury by breaking apart adhesions, scar tissue, and fascial restrictions. Combining IASTM with a custom-designed rehab program gives the patient’s the best possible outcome.
Custom orthotic insoles may be used to address any number of health concerns. These devices are made to fit the unique contours of each patient’s feet, providing support to reduce strain during specific repetitive motions. In addition to preventing foot abnormalities such as pressure ulcers, custom orthotics are excellent for people who suffer from arthritis or workers who must stand for long periods of time throughout the day.

Dry needling utilizes thin filiform needles to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues. Dry needling is effective for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Patients can benefit from Dry Needling with increases in range of motion, circulation, and muscle contraction.
Our cupping therapy utilizes plastic suction cups on the skin combined with active stretching in 5-15 minute sessions. Cupping therapy helps to increase the range of motion and blood flow while removing toxins from the muscles. This anti-inflammatory technique reduces muscle tension and increases circulation.
