Repetitive motion produces an inflammation process which, over time, results in chronic pain. This inflammation process produces scar tissue which creates muscular imbalances, resulting in decreased performance. SASTM treatment uses specialized instruments designed to detect and treat scar tissue. The treatments allow for the remodeling of connective tissue by reintroducing controlled amounts of micro-trauma. The instruments allow the therapist to detect and treat soft tissue adhesions more efficiently and effectively than traditional methods. Indications for SASTM: Scar Mobility and fascial restrictions SASTM can accomplish the following: Release of Fascial Restrictions and Adhesions Separates and Breaks Down Collagen Cross-links Splays and Stretches Connective Tissue and Muscle Fibers Increases Skin Temperature Facilitates Reflex Changes in Chronic Muscle Holding Patterns Increases Rate and Amount of Blood Flow to and from the Area Increases Histamine Response Secondary to Mast Cell Activity.
