Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is a patented manual therapy that uses stainless steel tools to aid soft tissue mobilization with the intended goal of breaking up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Graston method uses a set of six core instruments to detect and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, adhesion and/or chronic inflammation. Ailments treated with the Graston Technique are typically associated with injury to soft tissue in the form of muscle strain, overuse or pulled ligaments. The pressure applied by the practitioner using the instrument is intended to reintroduce minor “trauma” to the area, promoting an automatic anti-inflammatory response. The anti-inflammatory response reduces tissue viscosity, reduces pain, and increases blood flow resulting in improved flexibility of the underlying tissues.

Benefits of Graston include: 

  • Less treatment time because of an accelerated recovery

  • A non-medicinal option for recovery decreasing use of over the counter pain medication

  • Improves scar tissue, fascial restrictions, range of motion and associated pain

  • Treats multiple soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post-surgical
