Graston TechniqueGraston Technique is a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) The specially designed stainless steel tools are used to detect and treat areas of the body that exhibit soft tissue fibrosis or scar tissue. The tools gently break up adhesions and scar tissue that has built up in the muscles and fascia. If you break down the scar tissue it can get rid of pain and improve strength and range of motion. Graston is a technique that has been made popular by athletes though it actually works great for anyone who suffers from the tight stiff muscles we get from repetitive motion injuries or even bad posture. See the below for more details:
