The Graston Technique is a procedure used to detect and treat areas of scar tissue, or adhesions in muscles and other tissue that limit range of motion, that cause discomfort and pain. The Graston Technique is used to “break up” this restriction or adhesion. Stretching exercises are used to promote re-alignment of the fibers so they behave more like healthy tissue, leading to less pain and more mobility.
