View Demo:

This course has been designed systematically and evidenced-based, focusing on providing practical knowledge that can be applied immediately to patients. Participants will learn about IASTM, improve their assessment skills, and have the opportunity to practice the techniques learned in the home study course. The target audience for this course is therapists and therapist assistants, and the course material covers foundational knowledge that most PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs, and Massage Therapists (LMTs/MTs) did not learn in school.

The course consists of twelve distinct chapters.

  • Chapter 1: Foundation and why behind of IASTM
  • Chapter 2: Research and Effectiveness of IASTM
  • Chapter 3:  Principles and Benefits of IASTM
  • Chapter 4: Physiologic and neurophysiologic responses of IASTM
  • Chapter 5: Type of tools available
  • Chapter 6: Type of strokes, application and use
  • Chapter 7: Indications, precautions, and contraindications with IASTM
  • Chapter 8: Fascia, fascial chain and the fascial slings
  • Chapter 9: Trigger points and adaptive shortening
  • Chapter 10: Clinical Patterns of Movement Dysfunctions and Using IASTM
  • Chapter 11:  IASTM techniques for the upper body, including cervical, shoulder, thoracic, and elbow regions
  • Chapter 12: IASTM techniques for the lower body, including lumbar, hip, knee, and ankle regions

 

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: 

  • Interpret and list two sources on the foundation and origin of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM) and the latest research as it applies clinically.
  • Apply the fanning stroke with a patient with active or latent trigger points in their upper trapezius muscle.
  • Independently defend the selection of one IASTM tool and treatment plan for a specified clinical condition.
  • Correctly compare mechanical and physiologic responses of IASTM when provided with a case study.
  • Explain three critical differences between a fascial restriction and muscle tightness.
  • Identify two indications and two contraindications of IASTM for an instructor-named clinical condition.
  • Explain the rationale behind IASTM by comparing mechanical vs. neurological responses using the most current research.
  • Understand fascia and how to identify common fascial restrictions using the IASTM and the latest research.
  • Based on the instructor’s specified example indicating evaluation findings, I will accurately choose the IASTM technique to manage the condition.
  • Compare the clinical patterns of spinal stenosis, spondylosis, and lumbar radiculopathy in terms of each diagnosis behavior of symptoms, clinical findings, and common muscle imbalances.
  • Compare an active trigger point vs. a latent trigger point for patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
  • Justify the IASTM tool selected based on the presence of trigger points in a therapy evaluation.
  • Design a plan of care, including the IASTM, for a patient diagnosed with either a rotator cuff repair, subacromial decompression, shoulder impingement, or similar diagnoses.
