Graston Technique is a relatively new technique that decreases pain and inflammation while breaking up scar tissue on the muscles.
Why does Graston Technique aim to reduce scar tissue?
Scar tissue is thick, dense tissue that appears after injury or trauma. It can limit your range of motion, cause pain and lead to dysfunctional movement. Graston Technique® aims to break up this scar tissue to interrupt and break the cycle of pain and dysfunction. Graston Technique involves the use of a stainless steel instrument to break apart scar tissue on muscles. Graston Technique combined with Active Release Technique is a powerful combination of techniques to alleviate symptoms.
