The Graston Technique® incorporates a patented form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that effect normal function. The technique separates and breaks down collagen cross-links; splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers. Graston Technique® increases the rate and amount of blood flow to and from the area, and increases cellular activity in the region, including fibroblasts and mast cells.
