does S.A.S.T.M. work?
It is theorized that S.A.S.T.M. is effective
because of the following:
break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue.
The ergonomic design of these instruments
provides the clinician with the ability to
locate restrictions through sound waves. This allows the clinician to
treat the affected area with the appropriate
amount of pressure, due to square surface
of controlled microtrauma to affected soft
tissue structure causes the stimulation of
a local inflammatory response. Microtrauma
initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis
or excessive scar tissue and facilitates 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,
repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken
down allowing full functional restoration
