patient undergoing Graston techniqueGraston Technique® uses an instrument to break down scar tissue that develops between muscles, fascia and ligaments after injury or overuse.

Graston Technique is a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. The technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis (scar tissue or adhesions) or chronic inflammation. By breaking down scar tissue, the muscle is able to function as it is supposed to again, which reduces strain and pain.

Graston Technique can be used to treat a variety of muscle and joint problems, from over-use injuries to sprains and strains.

Common conditions treated by Graston Technique include:

  • Neck Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinosis
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Shin Splints
  • Back Pain
