IASTM (instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization) is also directly associated with the Graston brand. The Graston technique is a type of manual therapy that utilizes specialized ergonomic tools that massage and manipulate the skin gently. The Graston technique uses a set of stainless steel instruments to help soft tissue injuries to the connective tissues, muscles, neurological tissues and skin. It is effective for soft tissue injuries like repetitive stress injury, strains, sprains, and subluxations. This soft tissue mobilization technique is used for various acute & chronic injuries, including quadricep pain, rotator cuff pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and even headaches.
The benefits of the Graston technique include:
- Increased rate of volume and blood flow to affected areas to enhance healing
- Breakdown of collagen cross-links
- The boost in cellular activity for good health
- Reduction in inflammation
- Reduction in pain for the better quality of life
- Increased mobility and ability to perform daily tasks
