Needling, Graston and ASTYM techniques.
Normal tendon, capsule or ligament tissues are typically organized with dense, regular elongated/linear fibers running in the same direction, some of these tissues may run in different directions from attachment tio insertion, but the fibers will still have an organized linear architecture. When tissue is damaged and has interrupted healing due to incomplete treatments or excessive usage like (exercising too much on the non-healed injury), it will often heal in a fibrotic, haphazard and may appear radio-dense under diagnostic ultrasound. The tissue may show thickening, irregular organization or less precise margins as compared to non-injured tissues, which results in a restricted range of motion and, very often, pain and func tional limitations at joints or with tendon motion.
Scar tissue limits range of motion also due its negative impact on sensory motor firing rates and frequencies. Abnormal sensory inputs perpetuate a dysfunctional cycle of nervous system sensitization creating trigger points, pain and dysfunctional movement and motor output. Graton technique and ASTYM offers a positive method of manual therapy that interrupts and breaks this cycle of pain and dysfunctional movement.
