WalkWell Rehabilitation is a specialty, “niche” part of OrthoWell. Most physical therapy clinics don’t specialize like we do. We specialize in biomechanical evaluation (the study of body movement) and treatment of all orthopedic conditions of the lower extremity...

Graston Technique

The first step in treatment is to identify scar tissue. Microscopically, healthy tissue is smooth, longitudinal, and symmetrical in presentation. Scar tissue i.e. fibrosis is laid down by our bodies in a very haphazard and erratic fashion. Picture below.

During palpation, fibrosis will feel gritty or knotted. At OrthoWell/WalkWell, we may use Graston’s instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) to “break up” restrictions. This deep massage creates a reactive inflammation which “jump starts” healing. Keep in mind that inflammation can occur without healing, but healing cannot occur without inflammation. During the inflammatory stage, scar tissue can be reabsorbed by the body.
