Graston/IASTM therapy addresses injuries that involve the muscle and tendons in our joints. Muscle injuries are commonly referred to as soft tissue injuries. A soft-tissue injury involves damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and/or fascia somewhere in the body. Common soft-tissue injuries usually occur from a sprain, strain, blow to the body resulting in a contusion (ruptured blood vessels/bruising), or overuse of a particular body part. Soft tissue injuries can result in pain, swelling, bruising and loss of function. Adhesions within the soft tissue may develop as a result of repeated strain, surgery, immobilization or other mechanisms. Graston/ IASTM therapy is used to not only heal injured muscles but to increase range of motion in joints.
