Graston Technique®

Graston Technique®

Graston Technique® is an evidenced-based form of manual therapy known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. This therapy integrates the use of patented stainless steel instruments and a specialized form of massage or scraping the skin gently to detect and treat scar tissues and fascial restrictions that impact normal function. Graston Technique® aims to reduce pain and improve function by:

Breaking down scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions associated with soft tissue injury, stretching connective tissues to restructure soft tissue at the injury site, and promoting healing by increasing blood flow to the treatment site.

Graston Technique® is incredibly effective in reducing the pain associated with acute and chronic soft tissue injury and restoring movement and mobility.

Patients may experience some discomfort during treatment as your practitioner targets injured tissues, but should not experience intense pain. Mild bruising after treatment may occur as scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions are released and the body’s healing response is triggered.

The frequency of your treatments and the number of treatments needed will be based on your specific injury and your personal goals for recovery. Typically 1-2 sessions per week with at least 48 hours of time between sessions is recommended.
