What is the STARR Tool? (Pat. US D683,862 S)                       

Swiss Army Knife of IASTM tools.The Swiss Army Knife of IASTM tools that comes with instructions and demonstration videos for only $129. Why buy 4-5-6 tools when one will do the job? Stop switching tools in the middle of treatment just because you need to use a different shape edge. All you really need is a simple straight edge, a convex and concave surface. You also get 2, different size, small convex curves for treating small areas or performing cross friction to individual ligaments. Each side of this tool has a treating edge. I looked at what part of the tool contacts the patient during treatment and realized that the beveled edge did not serve any purpose. So I decided to make 2 different treatment edges. One side is slightly rounded (standard) and the other is more rounded. Use the more rounded edge for patients who do not like the standard edge or for low pain threshold patients and/or first time IASTM patients.

"I run a sports injury practice and soft tissue therapy has been a very important part of my treatment plan. Numerous athletes seek my services specifically because I do more than just chiropractic adjustments. Combining chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue therapy produces spectacular results.

 However, after years of performing manual soft tissue therapy I began experiencing pain in my hands and fingers. The Starr IASTM has allowed me to continue to set my practice apart from all the other chiropractic and physical therapy practices, without damaging my hands and fingers.

 

Plantar Fasciitis, Lateral Epicondylitis, Patellar Tendonitis, Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome, the Starr IASTM treats them all."
