Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated
The Graston Technique is a modern instrument assisted technique designed to treat acute and chronic soft tissue conditions and sports injuries.
The Graston Technique is a soft tissue mobilization technique which takes advantage of specially designed stainless steel instruments that aid the clinician in breaking up scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.
· Decrease overall treatment time
· Faster rehabilitation/recovery
· Reduces the need for anti-Inflammatory medication
· Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Six stainless steel instruments are the foundation to Graston Technique
The various curves and edges of the stainless steel instruments allow the clinician to be very specific in the areas that are to be treated. Each of the 6 patented instruments have been designed to conform to various contours of the body
Due to the firm construction of the instruments, it is possible for the clinician to actually feel and isolate adhesions and soft tissue restrictions in the injured area much better than palpation alone.
One advantage of using The Graston Technique is that the clinician can apply a direct and specific pressure to the area of adhesions through the instrument’s beveled edges. This allows the clinician to use minimal pressure and provides maximal comfort to the patient while administering the technique.
