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.

There are some very good physio therapists. They take care of their patients and aid in their recovery from illness. I only gave them a four-star rating because I was dissatisfied with the size of the clinic, the level of congestion, and the outdated nature of the beds and clinic.
If not, they deserve 5 stars

I went for foot therapy and was very impressed with the knowledge of my therapist and all the instruments they have , the only thing I would recommend is if they can start early by an hour to allow for working people to come to the clinic
