June 25, 2012 - PRLog -- Dr. Reddick was very busy a few weekends ago taking a class on this amazing soft tissue technique and is now very excited to be able to offer it at Complete Wellness Center of Orange City.

Dr. Reddick and Dr. Tah are now both certified in SASTM. Wondering what it is and how it can help you?

In 1987 David Graston suffered a life-altering injury when he dislocated his knee in a water-skiing accident. After reconstructive surgery and a long rehabilitation program, he was able to regain strength, but not range of motion. The therapist showed him how to perform cross-friction massage on the surgical scar, which he found beneficial. He started performing this massage continuously. Shortly after this he was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. This began the evolution of Sound-Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization.

Based on the “Gua Sha” technique used in Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years SASTM assists in cross-fiber massage. This is used to find and break down areas exhibiting soft-tissue fibrosis or constant inflammation. The micro trauma inflicted through the instrument initiates a healing flow, and then ice and stretching are used to help control pain, remodel tissue and restore function.

Soft tissue mobilization has been used to treat a number of diagnoses for some time. Sound-assisted soft tissue mobilization has most effectively been used in the restoration of function and the reduction of pain. Below is a list thus far of diagnoses SASTM can help to treat:

Achilles Tendonitis (Heel Pain)
Ankle Strains/Sprains (Medial/Lateral)
Bicep Tendonitis
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Cervical Pain (Neck)
DeQuervain's Syndrome (Gamer’s thumb)
Frozen Shoulder
Groin Pulls
Hammer Toe
Hamstring Injuries
Hip Replacements
Joint Contractures
Knee Replacements
Knee Sprains
Lumbar/Sacral Pain (Low Back)
Medial/Lateral Epicondylitis
Morton's Neuroma
Musculoskeletal Imbalances
Patellar Tendonitis (Anterior Knee Pain)

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
Scars (Surgical/Traumatic)
Shin Splints
Sacral Iliac Pain (Low Back)

So if you are suffering with any of these conditions this is an opportunity to get to the cause of your pain rather than just masking it with medication. Please ask our staff for more information about this groundbreaking technique. We can’t wait to help you!
