  • Explain three key 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 what fascia is, and how to identify common fascial restrictions using the IASTM and the latest research.
  • Based on the instructor’s specified example indicating evaluation findings, will accurately choose the IASTM technique to manage the condition.
  • Compare the difference between the clinical patterns of spinal stenosis, spondylosis, and lumbar radiculopathy in terms of each diagnosis behavior of symptoms, clinical findings, and common muscle imbalances.
