What Is Scar Tissue?

Scar tissue limits the range of motion due to its negative impact on sensory-motor firing rates and frequencies.

Graston Technique offers a positive method of manual therapy that interrupts and breaks this cycle of pain and dysfunctional movement.

Graston Technique®: How Does It Work

Graston Technique® is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training, resulting in improved patient outcomes. The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.
