The Graston Technique is a patented form of Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). This technique was developed by an athlete who was frustrated by the lack of rehabilitation progress after a knee injury.
Graston as well as other forms of IASTM are similar in a way to massage. They are both forms of soft-tissue mobilization, and therefore allow the practitioner to perform muscle work to promote healing. The only difference is that IASTM uses metal instruments to perform the work.
Using these instruments makes it easier to detect and treat any tightness in soft tissues and has a positive effect on pain in the area to facilitate therapeutic exercise. The use of an instrument focuses the forces through a smaller area than our fingers which allows for more efficient soft tissue work.

When considered effectiveness of this doctor's treatment I can say it's really good. But on the other hand the cost of treatment is really high. 700₹ per session and I was recommended 21 sessions for my backpain.

I happen to visit Dr. Vigil’s clinic for my back pain and was treated by Dr. Rakhi. I must say that Dr. Rakhi is an amazing person and will make sure that all your problems are taken care off. She ensured that I recover from the back pain and also helped me in curing my knee related problems. She’s a gem of a person and will always go out of her way to help out. Thank you Dr. Rakhi and Dr. Vigil for treating me and my sister well.
