“Instrument Assisted Soft
Tissue Manipulation (IASTM).” This is a course designed for physical therapists
and physical therapist assistants teaching the foundational material that most
PTAs and PTs did not learn while in school.
What is IASTM?
IASTM uses a bevel edge instrument, which adds shearing stress to soft tissue
to facilitate and enhance the body's healing response. The ability to focus a
technical force along a small contact surface to your patient's target tissue,
and do so with a relatively high level of comfort for both the patient and
treating therapist is one of the best features of this technique.
Because your time is precious, you can study this material at your convenience
and learn how to integrate IASTM with your current manual therapy techniques to
compliment and enhance your results even more! A manual therapist has a toolbox
of manual techniques. Every clinician shoulder learn the ‘how’ and ‘why’ behind
IASTM, but learn how this will compliment myofascial release, soft tissue
massage, joint mobilizations and other effective manual interventions while
saving your hands. IASTM is a simple, yet effective, manual therapy technique
that will help you achieve better results with your patients.
Why use IASTM?
This course was designed to be systematic, evidenced-based and most
importantly, have direct application that can be used immediately with your
patients. The course material nicely compliments a one or two-day live seminar
on IASTM offered by other CEU providers. In 2018, it is our intent to also
offer both a one-day and two-day IASTM live seminar courses that will
compliment the home study course. It will provide the attendee with the ability
to gain and understand new knowledge on IASTM, learn how to assess more
efficiently and practice the skills learned from the home study course.
The course comes with the following:
A 150 page comprehensive CEU approved course
manual that has over 240 references is divided into twelve distinct and
separate chapters. The course is filled with over 100+ illustrations and
graphics to enhance the learning experience. Deliverly is sent
electronically from PTCS to the customer or a physical manual can be shipped at
an additional fee.
The student will have access to over 70 videos that
compliment and review each of the twelve chapters of the IASTM Home Study
Course. To access these videos, each student is required to provide a sign in
on our secure website.
All examination costs are included. To earn respective CEUs,
a student must sign in on our secure website verifying to PTCS who they are.

leisure. Once the examination is complete and the student earns a score
of 75%, the CEU certificate is sent directly to the student from
