Graston Technique®

Graston Technique® is a type of practice which uses an instrument to assist soft tissue mobilization. This form of instrument allows clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. This instrument is used by athletic trainers, chiropractors, hand therapists, and physical therapists. This instrument is molded into concave and convex shapes to fit various contours of the body. This design allows the treatment to be minimal stress on the clinicians hands and allows maximal tissue penetration. This instrument is highly effective because unlike the human hand the Graston instrument is steel and does not compress allowing deeper restrictions to be accessed and treated.

The Graston Technique is used world-wide and has been deemed highly effective by many clinicians. This technique encourages fast recovery, reduces use of anti-inflammatory medication, and resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent.

This treatment has been clinically proven to help conditions, including: lower back pain, neck pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonosis, and scar tissue. Depending on the condition, treatments tend to last between 8-15 minutes and are physically demanding on both patient and practitioner. Most patients experience improvement in range of motion and decrease in pain following the treatment.
