Graston Technique

After an injury, the body creates scar tissue to help repair damaged muscles, tendons and ligaments. This scar tissue is often weaker and less flexible than normal soft tissue and can cause pain and decreased mobility. Graston Technique utilizes specialized stainless steel tools to help detect scar tissue and adhesions within soft tissue and promotes the realignment of healing fibers to improve mobility.

Graston Technique has been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions such as:

  • Cervical sprain/strain – Neck pain
  • Lumbar sprain/strain – Low back pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Wrist pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis – Foot pain
  • Lateral Epicondylitis – Tennis elbow
  • Medial Epicondylitis – Golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinosis – Shoulder pain
  • Patellofemoral Disorders – Knee pain
  • Achilles Tendinosis – Ankle pain
  • Shin Splints/Running Injuries

Graston instruments resonate in the clinician’s hands allowing the therapist to isolate adhesions and restrictions and treat them with precision. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, the Graston instruments significantly increase what the human hands can feel. Combined with stretching and strengthening activities, Graston Technique can drastically reduce recovery time.
