Benefits to Patients:

Graston Technique®, a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and treat areas affected by soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress, as is the case when using the fat pads of the finger, we can isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them more precisely.
