Graston Technique

Graston® Technique is an innovative, form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. This technique utilizes specially designed instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

The curvilinear edge of the patented Graston® Technique Instruments combined with their concave/convex shapes molds nicely to the various contours of the body. This design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician’s hands and maximum tissue penetration. 

The Graston® Technique protocol induces micro trauma to the area, which increases the amount of cells that are associated with wound healing. The damaged tissue is replaced with new tissue. Ice is then applied to reduce the pain and exercise is implemented to increase function and range of motion.
