Graston Technique

Treats Scars, Adhesions and Muscle Injuries

The Technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and treat areas exhibiting scar tissue or chronic inflammation.

Clinicians use the instruments with varying shapes to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. Once the tissue has been identified, the instruments break up scar tissue so the body can absorb it.

The Technique reduces pain and increases range of motion. It also:

  • Improves diagnostic treatment
  • Increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably better outcomes
  • Speeds rehabilitation and recovery
  • Reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Allows the patient to continue to engage in everyday activities.

The instruments are not meant to replace a clinician’s hands, but to complement them.

More than 16,000 clinicians, 1,650 outpatient facilities, 55 industrial sites and 250 professional and amateur sports organizations worldwide offer not only the original, but the finest instrument-assisted soft tissue treatment technology available.  GT is part of the curriculum at 49 respected colleges and universities. Trainers and clinicians at these organizations are treating elite athletes, patients and employees every day to get them injury free to function at the highest level.

The Technique provides patients with a new option in the treatment of musculoskeletal complaints.

The Graston Technique® instruments, while enhancing the clinician’s ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including:
