Graston Technique
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.

The Graston Technique Instruments, while enhancing the clinician's ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including:
  • Cervical sprain/strain (whiplash, neck pain)
  • Rotator Cuff injuries (shoulder pain)
  • Lumbar sprain/strain (back pain)
  • Patellofemoral disorders (knee pain)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Achilles Tendinopathy (ankle pain)
  • Plantar Fasciitis (foot pain)
  • Lateral Epicondylopathy (tennis elbow)
  • Medial Epicondylopathy (golfer's elbow)
  • Tibial Stress Syndrome (shin splints)
  • Trigger finger
  • Post-surgical and traumatic scar pain
