Graston/Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

GrastonGRASTON / I.A.S.T.M. has one main function

Break up abnormal densities in tissue, such as scar tissue, and to re-start first-stage healing in the body.

Scar tissue is the body’s attempt to heal and area by creating a “patch” at the site of an injury. This does help mend the injured tissue; however it is much less flexible than normal tissue. Overtime scar tissue can cause restricted motion, which leads to pain and inflammation. For example, a patient with a injured knees and ankles attempts a return to running, then begins to experience persistent pain.

The types of injuries that respond best to I.A.S.T.M. include acute and chronic spinal and extremity problems, such as tendinitis, golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, jumper’s knee, Achilles tendinosis, rotator cuff injuries, IT band syndrome and plantar fasciitis, and many more.
