Since 1994, Graston Technique® (GT) has been the leading modality in Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). GT is a unique, evidence based form of IASTM that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions and maintain optimal range of motion in their patients through comprehensive training and education. GT is clinically proven to achieve faster and better outcomes for acute and chronic conditions such as Achilles Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, Frozen Shoulder, IT Band Syndrome, Lumbar Strain and Plantar Fasciitis.
The Graston Technique® uses specially designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.
Advantages for the Patient:
Reduces overall time of treatment
Promotes faster rehabilitation/recovery
Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
May resolve chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Provides an efficient way to maintain optimal range of motion
