Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM)

An effective method utilized to break down adhesions and scar tissue. Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM) utilizes specifically engineered instruments, which resonate giving off sound waves when scar tissue is detected and treated allowing our Dr. Jonathan Gerrard, our Yaletown Chiropractor to effectively locate the exact tissue involved and know the extent of injury and or the amount of improvement over time with treatment.

Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM) introduces a controlled microtrauma to the painful affected soft tissue stimulating a local inflammatory response. In turn, absorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue occurs facilitating a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repetitive strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional range of motion.
