What is Graston?
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization utilized to break down scar tissue and fascia I adhesions Stainless steel instruments aid in recognition and treatment of adhesions and restrictions of soft tissue.
- Promotes soft tissue healing
- Decreases recovery time
- Aids in recovery of chronic conditions
- Increases blood flow and cellular activity
- Decreases scar tissue and adhesions
- Chronic Injuries
- Acute Injuries
- Post Operative Scarring
- Soft Tissue Dysfunction
Treatable musculoskeletal condition:
