Graston Technique

Graston Technique- is another treatment option that is very effective in cases of long-standing or chronic pain and soft tissue (muscle, tendon, and ligament) dysfunction. The Graston Technique instruments, while enhancing the clinicians ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions; and this may be a good treatment option for you.

Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated

Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training, resulting in improved patient outcomes.

The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.

Originally developed by athletes, Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 21,750 clinicians worldwide — including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers.

GT is utilized at some 2,540 outpatient facilities and 73 industrial sites, by more than 366 professional and amateur sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at more than 42 respected colleges and universities.
