What is Graston Technique®?

The Graston Technique® incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function. (http://www.grastontechnique.com). This is accomplished using the Graston® instruments which are a series of stainless steel tools.  When treating an area, the instruments effectively break up scar tissue and act to re-start and/or control the healing cycle within that tissue. Various applications can be utilized to treat a wide range of conditions from acute to chronic. Stretches and exercises both during and after treatment are essential to maximize the effectiveness of this technique.  Some patients may experience tenderness or bruising in the area that the treatment was applied, but this should dissipate in a few hours or days and is a common side effect.  Additional training by the clinician is required to use Graston Technique®.
