Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM)

About Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM)

Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM) at Active Physical Therapy

Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM) utilizes small instruments to break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The instruments use sound waves to identify areas of restrictions, allowing our team members to better localize affected areas and apply pressure and stimulate proper soft tissue restoration.

The introduction of controlled microtrauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response. Microtrauma initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue, which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down, allowing full functional restoration to occur.

What is SASTM?

Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM) is similar to the Graston or IASTM tools, which utilizes small instruments to stroke a soft tissue surface. The instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The ergonomic designs of these instruments provide the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves. This allows the clinician to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure, due to square surface concept.

Active Physical Therapy Testimonials

Active PT is truly an amazing place with staff that are singularly dedicated to getting you back on your feet properly. I’ve been here for 2 separate issues and I cannot be more happy and satisfied. They’ve helped me fix shoulder and elbow issues and a pinched nerve in my back. Most importantly to me, they were aligned with my goals of getting back to heavy weight training and endurance cycling and created a program tailored to my desires that also fixed my problems. What else could you ask for?

I have went through PT at another location for months and realized I wasn’t making any progress. Coming to Active PT was like night and day – I learned more about my injury/body then I did in months at the other pt. You have to be willing to do the work but I could feel more confident
and building strength so I could function normally. I cannot recommend Active PT enough if you want to regain your life back. They are a knowledge and caring staff!

I had the best experience with Active PT! My physical therapist John is knowledgeable, skilled, friendly, and just awesome! Jenna, a PT student about to graduate, was also very impressive with her skills and treatment plan for my needs. I feel stronger now and very well cared for. Thank you! Highly recommend!
