Fluid Motion Soft Tissue (FMST)
Graston Technique® was an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enabled clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Once the Graston tools went off their patent, many practitioners came forth with their ideas for new and improved tools. Fluid Motion Soft Tissue Tools are very effective in breaking down scar tissue and restrictions within the soft tissue which may have developed because of trauma, surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, allowing full functional restoration to occur. The FMST tools are the tools that take myofascial manipulation and mobilization to the next level.
The larger tool is used for mid- lower back and leg treatments.
The smaller tool is used to treat
the shoulder, neck, arms, hands and feet.
