Graston Technique


Graston Technique is a 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 and chronic inflammation.Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. 


Graston technique is clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating:

  • Achilles Tendinitis                                                         
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
  • Trigger Finger
  • Shin Splints
  • Scar Tissue
  • Knee Disorders
  • Neck/Back Strain


What kind of results does the Graston Technique produce?

Historically the Graston Technique has had positive outcomes in 75-90% of all conditions treated. It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries and pre- and post surgical patients.


What to expect after a Graston treatment?

It is common to experience minor discomfort during the procedure and some bruising afterward. This is a normal response and part of the healing process.
