Graston Technique

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:


  1. Lumbar Sprain/Strain (back pain)
  2. Cervical Sprain/Strain (whiplash, neck pain)
  3. Rotator Cuff Injuries (shoulder pain)
  4. Lateral Epicondylopathy (tennis elbow)
  5. Medial Epicondylopathy (golfer’s elbow)
  6. Trigger Finger
  7. Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain)
  8. Achilles Tendinopathy (tendon pain at back of ankle)
  9. Plantar Fasciitis (bottom of foot and heel pain)
  10. Tibial Stress Syndromes (shin splints)
  11. Post-surgical and Traumatic Scar Pain
