ASTM/Graston Technique

ASTM/Graston Technique

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, or Graston Technique, is a soft tissue technique utilizing specific tools which, when effectively applied by a trained practitioner, will break up myofascial adhesions and scar tissue. This can help to alleviate chronic tightness throughout the body. Using this technique, patients will notice improved mobility, decreased pain and tension, improved circulation and quicker healing of injuries. Conditions such as sprains, strains, and tendinitis respond very well to this technique

Chiropractors are health care professionals who diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, including nerves, bones (including the spine), muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Chiropractors have a doctorate degree and are accredited by the DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) upon passing a 3 part board exam. The amount of education is extensive. Both DC’s and MD’s are strong in basic sciences and clinical diagnostics, where one degree may have slightly more training than another in any specific area. Chiropractors focus on the musculoskeletal system instead of MDs, who focus on diseases or what we know as internal medicine.
