The Graston Technique uses instruments 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 instrument is used in a way to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. The Graston Technique reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication, resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent and fosters a faster rehabilitation/recovery.
Graston is a proven technique among physicians and sports medicine practitioners in treating many musculoskeletal injuries and complaints including: carpal tunnel syndrome, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), rotator cuff tendinosis, achilles tendinosis, scar tissue, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, medial epicondylosis (golfer’s elbow), patellofemoral disorders, IT band tendinosis, thoracic outlet syndrome, headaches, and TMJ pain.
