IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization)
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a form of manual therapy designed to treat soft tissue disorders. This technique effectively treats new injuries as well as chronic conditions such as tennis elbow, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis. IASTM is a soft-tissue treatment that utilizes instruments to break up areas of fibrous scar tissue. After these adhesions are broken up, the body absorbs them allowing proper healing, decreasing pain and improving overall function.
Dr. Martin prescribes his patients exercises designed specifically for their individual needs to help rehabilitate and strengthen muscle groups related to their condition. Individuals will have a prescribed exercise plan designed to ensure the best possible outcome for their condition.
Chiropractic & Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can alleviate and even prevent common discomforts experienced. Specific adjustments eliminate the causes of stress in the spine and pelvis. Mothers with a breech presentation can seek chiropractic care to help turn the baby so a natural birth can occur.
Dr. Martin believes non-invasive treatments should be the first option and patients should be seen as a whole person, not a symptom. It is his philosophy that true healing cannot be achieved without understanding the integration of musculoskeletal, neurological and emotional systems.
