Graston Technique/IASTM

Graston Technique/IASTM in Palm Beach Gardens FL

Graston Technique Therapy is an evidence based form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization(IASTM) that allows for precise detection and treatment of fascial restrictions as well as muscle and tendon dysfunction. Following the kinetic chain, Graston technique targets and specifically treats affected tissues resolving issues once thought to be permanent utilizing specifically designed instruments. Graston technique is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute, or post-surgical. The technique and instrumentation enable the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation and with greater success when the goal is restoring range of motion, eliminating pain and restoring normal function. The Graston tools are used in two ways. First, to locate muscle knots or restrictions by running the tool over the skin to feel for fibrous or scar tissue that may be causing pain or restricting movement. Second, the tools are used to restore mobility and function.   Once the non-linear scar tissue matrix of the weak and damaged tissue is restored to a stronger linear matrix, a series of specifically designed exercises are implemented to restore normal function of the connective tissue and corresponding joints.
