There are numerous techniques in physiotherapy that help to increase the function between muscles and the fascia that surrounds them. There is a condition called myofascial adhesions which limit muscles to glide freely. The end result can lead to myofascitis which is inflammation of the fascia that surrounds muscle.
Graston is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) that has improved patient injuries for the last twenty years. This unique therapy specifically addresses scar tissue, adhesions, trigger points as well as fascial restrictions. Chiropractic care and Graston Therapy has resulted in a great improvement in patient outcomes.
