Using the Integrative Diagnosis (ID) system we specializing in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, which includes using instruments to assist in that. The instrument technique we prefer to use is called Instrument Adhesion Release (IAR™). The IAR tool provides for more specific treatment; however more importantly it has an edge that is more comfortable for the patient. Below is a picture of the IAR instrument being applied to scar tissue in the forearm extensor muscles.
Instruments work best for scar tissue or adhesions that are closer to the surface and doesn’t work very well on deeper muscles.
Conditions that are effectively treated with IAR™ include but are not limited too:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Medial/Lateral Epicondylitis
- Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis(Heel Pain)
- Ankle Strains/Sprains
- Shin Splints
- Patellar Tendinitis
