RockTape USA has invested much time, effort and expertise to form several Functional Movement Taping (FMT) courses within their educational curriculum. They have also incorporated the use of a tool to help patient treatment and to improve treatment results. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, or also known in short as IASTM, is a growing trend in the health care field, especially among the highly active patient.
Those heath care providers that are FMT Blade certified are trained to review screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to help facilitate treatment programs and overall progression of improvement with an individual's condition. Things taken into consideration are the anatomy, physiology, and considerably most important is the neurology of the potential soft tissue dysfunction of the patient, and then assessing how to best use the tools to improve the dysfunctional patterns. These different IASTM intervention strategies can also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a more comprehensive approach to patient care.
