Graston or IASTM is a common technique used in therapy and clinical settings to address soft tissue hypo-mobility and to increase blood flow to tissues. We also use it for recovery purposes at the OAI even for athletes who are healthy but are sore or in between throwing outings. Graston can be a useful tool in a therapist’s repertoire. Here we show IASTM being used on the lats, forearm, and shoulder which are common areas athletes get sore and fatigued. Using Graston on these tissues can allow the pitchers to get back on the mound quicker with less residual soreness.
