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 detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
The Graston Technique® instruments allow the clinician to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the instruments ‘metal surface does not compress, as do the fat pads of the fingers, deeper restrictions can be accessed and treated than by hand alone.
Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 7,500 clinicians worldwide—including athletic trainers, chiropractors, hand therapists, occupational and physical therapists. It is utilized in over 800 outpatient facilities and industrial on-sites, by more than 125 professional and amateur sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at 32 respected colleges and universities.
