addition to dry needling, MMSPT also uses cups and Graston tools to effectively
break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Graston Technique incorporates a patented
form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to
effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal
- Separates and breaks down collagen cross-links, and splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers.
- Increases skin temperature
- Facilitates reflex changes in the chronic muscle holding pattern
- Alters spinal reflex activity (facilitated segment)
- Increases the rates and amount of blood flow to and from the area
- Increases cellular activity in the region, including fibroblasts and mast cells
- Increases histamine response secondary to mast cell activity.
