Graston Technique / IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization)

Graston/IASTM is a form of soft tissue release technique that utilizes metal tools to lift tissue and stimulate the neurovascular system to aid in the healing process of various injuries. 

How does it work?  Graston utilizes 6 stainless steel tools that have contoured edges to conform to different body parts.  The tools are rubbed over the skin in varying strokes to detect and treat soft tissue dysfunction and restrictions.  Following this treatment, rehabilitative exercises are performed to improve musculoskeletal function.

What conditions can be treated?  A multitude of injuries or conditions can be treated using Graston/IASTM including:  Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, neck pain, low back pain, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, patellofemoral syndrome, runner's knee, shin splints, rotator cuff tendonitis, scar tissue, entrapment syndromes and many more.
