Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed surgical grade stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
This treatment creates less tissue compression than other tissue mobilization techniques and can decrease the overall recovery time for the patient. Graston decreases the need for anti-inflammatory drugs and it can resolve chronic conditions thought to be permanent.
The Graston Technique®, while enhancing the clinician’s ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, has been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions including:
• Cervical sprain/strain
• Lumbar sprain/strain
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
• Medial Epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)
• Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
• Patellofemoral Disorders
• Achilles Tendinitis
• Shin Splints
• Scar Tissue
• Trigger Finger
