Experience IASTM and Graston Technique in London at Kinect Health
What is IASTM and Graston Technique?
IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) is a type of soft tissue assessment and treatment administered with specially designed instruments. Developed from traditional Chinese Gua Sha, IASTM and Graston have proven to be very effective at treating soft tissue problems.
How can IASTM help me resolve pain and injuries?
Specially designed instruments are used to assess and treat soft tissues. This has several therapeutic benefits such as decreasing muscle tone, increasing blood flow and the mobilising of thickened hyaluronic acid. Treatment can also help stimulate and improve the tissue healing / remodeling process.
Graston has been shown to be effective in the treatment of:
- Lumbar strains and sprains
- Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Shin Splints
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Patello-femoral Disorders
- Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis
Creating change in the nervous system
One of the best outcomes of IASTM is its ability to influence the nervous system. Stimulation of receptors that are found inside muscles, fascia, tendons etc, can help create fast changes to pain, tension and muscle function. Although these changes are often temporary, it creates a window of opportunity to reinforce the changes with movement.
Why movement is key
The goal of all of the techniques we utilise at Kinect Health is to help create lasting change. This can only be done through a systemic approach to influencing soft tissue and reinforcing with movement / exercises. Manual therapy techniques like IASTM, help speed up this process.
