Graston Therapy


Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is a specialized form of manual therapy used to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries and restrictions. It involves the use of specially designed stainless-steel instruments to detect and break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions, restoring optimal function to the affected tissues. Widely utilized in sports medicine, physical therapy, and chiropractic care, the Graston Technique is known for its effectiveness in reducing pain, improving mobility, and accelerating the healing process.

How It Works

The Graston Technique utilizes a set of ergonomically designed stainless steel instruments with unique shapes and edges. These instruments are used by trained practitioners to effectively detect and treat areas of scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. The instruments are applied to the skin with gentle pressure and are then used to scrape or "grasp" along the surface of the tissue, breaking up adhesions and promoting healing.

Key Benefits

     - Pain Relief: The Graston Technique effectively reduces pain associated with soft tissue injuries by breaking up scar tissue and adhesions, restoring normal tissue function.

     - Improved Mobility: By addressing fascial restrictions and adhesions, the Graston Technique helps improve joint mobility, range of motion, and overall functional movement.

     - Accelerated Healing: The controlled microtrauma induced by the instruments stimulates the body's natural healing response, promoting the production of collagen and facilitating tissue repair and regeneration.

What to Expect

During a Graston Technique session, the practitioner will first assess the patient's condition to identify areas of restricted movement and tissue dysfunction. The practitioner will then apply a small amount of lubricant to the skin and use the Graston instruments to scan and treat the affected areas. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the treatment as adhesions are broken up, but most find the overall experience to be both effective and therapeutic. 

Ideal for

The Graston Technique is suitable for individuals of all ages and activity levels who are experiencing pain, stiffness, or decreased mobility due to soft tissue injuries or dysfunction. It is particularly beneficial for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and individuals engaged in repetitive or high-intensity activities. The Graston Technique can address a wide range of conditions, including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow, among others.
