Graston Technique 

Improving Injury Treatment and Rehabilitation 

Graston Technique (GT) enables physical and occupational therapist, massage therapist, chiropractors, athletic trainers and hand therapist to address scar tissue, fascial restrictions, and range of motion limitations. The non-invasive technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. 

GT allows a clinician to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to patient pain and tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions, they break up scar tissue. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring motion and eliminating the pain associated with it. It will rebuild your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue. 

While bruising is not the intent, soreness can occur during treatment. GT clinicians are trained to recognize these symptoms and adjust treatment intensity to minimize their occurrence while realizing the benefits of the technique. GT does not need to be considered " painful" to be effective. Plase, inform your clinician when you are experiencing discomfort anytime during treatment. 

Patients usually receive two treatments per week during a four-to-five week period.  Most patients have a positive response by the third or fourth treatment. 

Graston Technique is accepted nationwide by elite athletes and everyday patients as the most effective soft-tissue treatment for rehabilitation.
