iastm Physical Therapy
Advanced Instrument Assisted Recovery from our Physical Therapy ClinicIASTM “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization,” is a manual therapy approach to musculoskeletal injuries using ergonomically designed tools, usually made of stainless steel. As a manual therapist, I rely on my hands often when assisting patients. IASTM works to compliment my hands by adding another layer of assessing your soft tissue injuries more precisely. IASTM works to promote proper tissue healing by encouraging increased blood flow to the injured area. These tools assist in breaking up excessive scar tissue formation and work to improve limited range of motion due to restrictions or pain.
We often use IASTM to treat some of these symptons:
- Cervical (neck) pain
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
- Medial Epicondylitis
- Lateral Epicondylitis
- Low back pain
- Hip pain
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome (IT Band)
- Patellar Tendonitis
- Posterior Tibialis Tendonitis
- Plantar Fasciitis – heel pain
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Myofascial trigger points
- Post-surgical scarring or traumatic scarring
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscle Strains
Where Recovery Has No Boundaries
I had suffered a back injury for over 2 yrs and had tried many different treatments without successfully eliminating my pain. Dr. Henderson was not only able to provide the pain relief I’d been looking for but also helped me get to a point of being physically active and able to do high-intensity workouts again. His knowledge and techniques in Physical Therapy are superior and have made a tremendous difference in my ability to live a full life. - Nalissa S.
I cannot praise Dr. Henderson’s skills highly enough. Before I started working with him, I had been to four MDs, worked with two other physical therapists, and seen a chiropractor. After wasting thousands of dollars on expensive scans and painful procedures, I had lost hope.Rob helped me when no one else could. Not only is he skilled, but he really cares about his patients. He listens to me and answers all my questions. He treats me like an intelligent person. Thank you, Rob, for helping me get my life back. - Caroline M.
Before I went to Dr.Robert Henderson, I had Vertigo and was experiencing extreme dizziness. I went to several doctors, and none of the suggested treatments worked. I had given up. Dr.Robert Henderson changed that. After my first few sessions, I felt better, and the vertigo is gone. I highly recommend Dr. Robert Henderson for his caring and professionalism in my goal of getting better. - Heather H.
Upon meeting Dr. Henderson and having him put together a customized plan for me, I began to feel better. He listens attentively, cares about his patients, and truly wants you to accomplish your goals. To this day, I still see Dr. Henderson when I have occasional tightness or burning in my hamstrings. After a quick session of hands-on therapy and Graston therapy, I am able to run again. I can say Dr. Henderson is truly my #1 RECOMMENDED, 5-Star Physical Therapist, and would NOT recommend anyone else before him. I can’t thank him enough for all the help he’s given me and for allowing me to run/play football again without pain. - Chris H.
Dr. Henderson put me on a customized plan of care and adjusted it accordingly as I became more comfortable with movements. When it was appropriate, we ramped up our rehab, and he began to challenge me. Dr. Henderson is by far the best physical therapist I've ever worked. Simply put I trusted Robert with getting my Achilles back to full strength. I have worked with countless trainers and rehabs doing a myriad of different types of training over the course of my life. Robert is one of the smarter, kinder people I have encountered. He's willing to learn new things to make sure his clients get the best treatments available on the market. - Brett H.
