Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) can promote tissue healing & help reduce scar tissue/adhesions. A common injury that responds well to IASTM is lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow. Buy a Fiix Elbow device at: https://staactive.com/products/e5 (sponsored link)

Lateral epicondylitis is most often called tennis elbow due to people getting it with the repetitive motions in tennis, but it is also referred to by things like iPad elbow, and can be caused by any action that involves the same tennis-like repetitive motions.

With traditional IASTM a manual tool (often made of stainless steel, stone, plastic, or other materials) is used to help get deeper into the tissue for treatment. This technique has evolved over time from a technique called Gua sha used in Chinese medicine. A common technique used today is called the Graston technique.

While these techniques can be very effective in breaking down restrictions in the tissue, if not done correctly, they can irritate the area more. They can also be difficult to do on yourself.

These are some of the reasons the folks at Stā Active created the Fiix Elbow, which is an automated IASTM device. It’s a great way to help get a consistent and constant amount of pressure with the correct angle. This can be especially beneficial for a maintenance program for tennis elbow.
