Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)


Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, also known commonly as Graston technique®, is a specialized myofascial release and massage technique used during physical therapy treatments. It is a relatively newer treatment that involves using metal or plastic tools to improve soft tissue mobility in your body. These ergonomically shaped tools help your PT massage and mobilize your muscles, fascia (the collagen covering your muscles), and tendons. This is thought to reduce pain and improve movement.


Sometimes after an injury, you may develop tissue tightness or restrictions in muscles and fascia. These soft tissue restrictions can limit your range of motion (ROM) and may cause pain. Your physical therapist may use various myofascial release and soft tissue mobilization techniques to free these restrictions to help you move better and feel better. Myofascial release with ISATM may be one way your PT treats these restrictions.
