The EDGE Tool

Erson Religioso and Mike Reinold have a nice video for you discussing why and how they both started using instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM).  Like many people, I held out initially as I wanted to hear and see more. However, the more I learned the more interested I became.

In this video, Erson and Mike describe how and why they both started using IASTM, how they integrate IASTM with other manual techniques and exercise, the major benefits of IASTM, and then some brief technique demonstrations.

The EDGE is THE ORIGINAL 300 grade stainless steel tool for assisted soft tissue manipulation from Buffalo, NY. It was created by “Dr. E” Erson Religisio, DPT. Dr. E had always been interested in other big name approaches but did not want to pay the prices. As an orthopaedic manual therapist who teaches in both APTA and AAOMPT accredited fellowship programs, he developed his own tool with different edges for different areas of the body. It is lightweight, has a comfortable grip, and even certified practitioners of the “other” techniques have used it and found it more comfortable and easier to use. It’s several tools in one!

The EDGE is used by professionals all over the world! Some organizations that use the EDGE: NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, division 1 schools, smaller colleges, high school ATs and of in the capable hands of PTs, DCs, MTs, and ATs.
