Graston Technique®

Graston Technique® is successful in effectively treating many soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or acute, or post-surgical. Some of the many advantages include:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

The six stainless steel instruments form the cornerstone of the Graston Technique® because their concave/convex shapes mold the instruments to various contours of the body. Their design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician’s hands and maximum tissue penetration.

Clinicians can effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training, resulting in improved patient outcomes. 

The specially designed stainless-steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, can 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.
