What is Graston Technique®?
Graston Technique® (GT) is the orginial instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique that is changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated. GT® prevents acute conditions from becoming chronic and is reversing the outcome of conditions once thought to be permanent. GT® is substantiated by research. GT® enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue firbrosis or chronic inflammation.
What are the benefits of Graston Technique®?
- Decreased overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
What types of conditions does Graston Technique® treat?
GT® can treat acute, chronic and even post surgical condtions. GT® is an excellent blueprint for treating and resoloving soft tissue injuries, including repetitive stress diagnoses. Clinicians report improved outcomes, decreased number of treatments and reduced manual stress. Here is a list of acute or chronic condtions that GT® can treat:
- Cervical Strain/Sprain (neck pain)
- Lumber Strain/Spain (back pain)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain)
- Plantar Fasciitis (foot pain)
- Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
- Medial Epicondylitis (golfer's elbow)
- Rotator Cuff Tendinitis (shoulder pain)
- Patellofemoral Disorder (knee pain)
- Achilles Tendinitis (ankle pain)
- Scar Tissue
- Shin Splints
- Trigger Points
