Scar tissue after knee replacement
Hi is this for scar tissue?
Jump to this post
Graston Technique and Myofascial release Massage is also option this for scar tissue, ROM, and ultimately relieving pain. I did both- Graston hurts like a mother but is probably most effective
Dry Needling works on the pain from scar tissue but it doesn’t remold so it’s not a “fix”. Grayson and ASTYM are similar. In the case of a TKR, Grayson uses stainless steel tools and is targeted to an area. ASTYM uses plastic tools and the entire leg (toes to thigh- front and back) is treated. I tried all three techniques before I agreed to have the original surgeon go back into the knee and do an arthroscopic lysis of adhesions.
