Graston Technique: Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue, fascial restrictions and range of motion limitations. This non-invasive technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to identify and treat areas with soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. IPT therapists use six stainless steel instruments with beveled edges designed specifically for different areas of the body.
Graston technique allows the therapist to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change while being 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 while decreasing pain. This technique rebuilds injured tissue into healthy functioning tissue.
Graston Technique is clinically proven to achieve faster and better patient outcomes in treating:
Achilles tendinosis, fibromyalgia, neck strain/pain, lumbar strains/low back pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, trigger finger, tennis, and golfers elbow, patellofemoral disorders (knee pain), and women’s health (post-mastectomy).
Graston Technique is accepted nationwide by elite athletes and everyday patients like you.
