Graston Technique

What is Graston?
The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization.
 
In 1994, the technique was utilized in an outpatient clinic in Indianapolis. For 5 years, outcome data was gathered on acute and chronic injuries. The clinic found success with treatment and now, the company has focused its attention on training and educating clinicians.
 
There are 6 core tools made of stainless steel which have rounded edges. These tools scan over and detect areas of injury or areas of ‘muscle tightness’. The technique is focused on increasing blood flow to the area in order to initiate and promote healing of soft tissues

 

What are the benefits?
The goal of this technique is to reduce your pain and increase function by:

  • Breaking down scar tissue and fascia restrictions
  • Reducing restrictions by stretching connective tissue
  • Promoting a better healing environment for the injured tissue

 

Why is it important to reduce restrictions and break down scar tissue?
By reducing restrictions and breaking down scar tissue, it will improve range of motion and allow you to move more efficiently!
 

How does it promote a better healing environment for my injury?
Allows for increased blood flow to the area which leads to increased oxygen supply to the muscles and other soft tissue and increases healing nutrients to the injured site. Ultimately, it can reduce healing times!
