Mechanism of Action

Graston Technique utilizes a specific protocol of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) combined with exercise to detect and treat adhesions, scar tissue, and fascial restrictions. The instruments detect and amplify soft tissue restrictions, facilitating precise localization and treatment of problematic areas.

Biomechanical Effects

These instruments apply controlled microtrauma to the affected soft tissue, stimulating a local inflammatory response. This promotes the healing cascade, enhancing tissue regeneration and remodeling. The process involves fibroblast activation and collagen reorganization, essential for effective tissue repair.
