Graston Technique soft tissue therapy is a non-invasive technique using specially designed stainless steel instruments to help identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Graston is a trademarked version of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization or IASTM.
GT allows deep therapy into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to patient pain and tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions, they help break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. It will help transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
Used by elite athletes and everyday patients, Graston Technique is successful in treating many kinds of soft tissue conditions. Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating. Graston is successful in effectively treating these tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post surgical. GT can help you enjoy your ideal 100 Year Lifestyle again.
