Graston Technique is used by therapists, chiropractors and athletic trainers to effectively break down scar tissue. Using stainless steel instruments, the technique combes over and "catches" fibrotic tissue. This allows for treatment of soft tissue lesions and finding the root cause of pain. Once the tissue dysfunction is found, the instruments then break up the scar tissue, which is absorbed back into the body. Using stretching, strengthening and ice as part of the treatment and rehab process, a soft tissue injury can be rebuilt into healthy and functioning tissue once again.
