Graston Technique (GT) is a non-invasive technique that uses specially designed instruments to help the clinician identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis (scarring) or chronic inflammation. It is great for both long term (chronic) or acute (recent) soft tissue injuries. Graston is widely used in the USA with professional sporting teams.
Graston allows a clinician to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to patient pain and tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions, they help break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibres, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. It will help transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
