Graston Technique is a patented form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) use to break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique involves 6 stainless steel instruments of differing shapes and sizes to effectively detect and treat areas of soft tissue fibrosis (scarring) or chronic inflammation.
The stainless steel Graston Technique instruments act like a stethoscope enhancing the doctors at ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions. Graston Technique has been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating a number of different acute and chronic injuries including:
- Lumbar Sprain/Strain (back pain)
- Cervical Sprain/Strain (whiplash, neck pain)
- Rotator Cuff Injuries (shoulder pain)
- Lateral Epicondylopathy (tennis elbow)
- Medial Epicondylopathy (golfer’s elbow)
- Trigger Finger
- Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain)
- Achilles Tendinopathy (tendon pain at back of ankle)
- Plantar Fasciitis (bottom of foot and heel pain)
- Tibial Stress Syndromes (shin splints)
- Post-surgical and Traumatic Scar Pain
