The Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians 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, helping restore the structure and function of the tissue.
The Graston Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization technique is a soft tissue technique designed to mobilize, reduce and reorganize fibrotic restrictions in the neuromusculoskeletal system.
The goal of Graston is to create an inflammatory response and allow remodeling to take over from this point.
For the patient, Graston Technique® has brought a decrease in the overall time of treatment, faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduction in the need for anti-inflammatory medication, and also helped to resolve chronic conditions thought to be permanent. Graston Technique® has also shown promise in treating a variety of other conditions and injuries.
