What is Instrument Assisted Myofascial Release
Check out this video on Facebook on what Instrument Assisted Myofascial Release is and what it can do for us.
IAMR is a modality that uses specialized tools. These can be made of metal, such as stainless steel, and are shaped to allow for effective therapy over various parts of the body, including arms, legs, and back.
When applied properly, IAMR can be used at specific trigger points that are abnormally tight. Myofascial release can allow athletes to recover from these setbacks and continue with their regular activities at a high level.
Dr. Gibson is highly trained with IAMR and utilizes the graston technique, which requires additional training outside of the normal course work while in chiropractic college. He utilizes this technique on multiple collegiate athletes but also any patient that requires additional soft tissue work.
