Sports Injury
Biomechanical alterations make athletes more susceptible to injuries. Targeting specific muscles in training will help counteract these dysfunctions, restore proper mechanics, and increase neuromuscular control. IASTM is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes. At OYBC we use specially designed instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of the IASTM instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function. The instruments also are used diagnostically to assess the kinetic chain, in an efficient manner using the principles of regional interdependence. Kinesiology Tape can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee, and back pain. K-Tape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.
