What is Graston Technique®?

Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) 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. The Graston Technique®, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians — including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors and athletic trainers ,— and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.

Recently our staff went through the certification process to become Graston Providers. We felt this technique would be a great adjunct to the treatment techniques we currently offer our patients. As therapists, soft tissue problems present one of the biggest challenges to improving functional mobility and reducing pain. This technique enhances our ability to treat those problems.
