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.

My experience with Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy was good. I had severe back pain since last 8 months. Due to my busy schedule I am not able to go any treatments.
Before come to Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy clinic I have tried two physiotherapy in Andheri near to my office. Unfortunately both failed.
But here at Dr. Vigil's place the process treatment is different. Dr. Vigil is having advanced shockwave machine which do faster healing process.
After week physiotherapy my backpain almost gone. Now as directed I am going gym and with his guidance I have recover from my prolonged back pain.
My personal advice to everyone who has back pain and looking for solution than Dr. Vigil is doctor you looking for complete treatment.
Thank you Dr. Vigil and its team to helping me from bad back pain.

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.
