Graston Technique



The Graston Technique® is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively identify and break down scar tissue and mechanical restrictions within soft tissues. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments, in combination with stretches and exercises to achieve optimal outcomes.   Graston Technique® is used to treat a number of tendon disorders, mobilize scar tissue and reduce edema. 

Common diagnoses treated with Graston Technique include:
