Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated.

 

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

 

 

 

 

Originally developed by athletes, Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 16,000 clinicians worldwide. GT is utilized at some 1,550 outpatient facilities and 39 industrial sites, by more than 234 professional sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at 54 respected colleges and universities.

 

 

 

Advantages of the Graston Technique®

 


For your clinician:

  •Provides improved diagnostic treatment


 

  •Detects major and minor fibrotic changes

 

 

 •Reduces manual stress; provides hand and joint conservation

 

 

 •Increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably better outcomes

 

 

 

 

For the patient:

 

•Decreases overall time of treatment

 

 •Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery

 

 •Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication

 

 •Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent


 

 The Graston Technique® Instruments, much like a tuning fork, resonate in the clinician's hands allowing the clinician to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress as do the fat pads of the finger, deeper restrictions can be accessed
and treated. When explaining the properties of the instruments, we often use the analogy of a stethoscope. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, so do the instruments increase significantly what the human hands can feel.
