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, relieving and assisting pain management. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.  Originally developed by athletes, Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 16,000 clinicians worldwide—including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers.GT is utilized at some 1,550 outpatient facilities and 39 industrial sites, by more than 234 professional and amateur sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at 54 respected colleges and universities.

For the pain patient, Graston Technique provides quicker and more improved outcomes.  There is increased satisfaction in recovery time and decreased frustration as a result of Graston Technique’s inherent diagnostic ability.  Pain, swelling, spasm, and knots in the muscle decrease quickly.  Movement or range of motion improve quickly.  Typically, results are experienced in 2-5 office visits.

 

 

Patients having open wounds, thrombophlebitis, uncontrolled hypertension, inflammatory conditions due to infection, hematoma, osteomyelitis or an unstable fracture should NOT have Graston Technique performed.  Be sure to consult with a Certified Graston Technique practitioner.

Micheal Phelps Medals

Swimmer Michael Phelps, winner of 18 Olympic gold medals, during an interview printed in the August 2012 issue of Details Magazine was asked “So what do you do for recovery”?  Michael’s response was “My trainer…uses Graston tools, these little metal crowbars.  He carves them into my shoulder blades, my back, my knee, my hamstrings-wherever I’m really tight-to loosen things up.  It’s pretty intense”.
