When soft tissue is damaged, it will often heal in a fibrotic, haphazard manner and may appear radio-dense under diagnostic ultrasound. The tissue may show thickening, irregular organization or less precise margins as compared to non-injured tissues, which results in a restricted range of motion and, very often, pain and functional limitations.
Graston Technique offers a positive method of manual therapy that interrupts and breaks this cycle of pain and dysfunctional movement.

It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries, and pre- and post-surgical patients.
