Graston Technique

Graston Technique Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated. Graston Technique is an interdisciplinary treatment used by nearly 5000 clinicians—including athletic trainers, chiropractors, hand therapists, occupational and physical therapists.

GT is implemented at the following settings:
Out Patient FacilitiesCompanies/IndustrySchools and UniversitiesSports Organizations

For the clinician: It provides improved diagnostic treatment. It help in detecting major and minor fibrotic changes in soft tissue. It also reduces manual stress; provides hand and joint conservation of the clinician. It also increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably better outcomes that further expands business and revenue opportunities
For the patient: It decreases overall time of treatment, fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication, resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Six stainless steel instruments form the cornerstone of Graston Technique. The curvilinear edge of the patented Graston Technique Instruments combine their concave/convex shapes to mold the instruments to various contours of the body. This design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician's hands and maximum tissue penetration.
Specialty of Graston Technique:
The Graston Technique Instruments, much like a tuning fork, resonate in the clinician's hands allowing the clinician to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress as do the fat pads of the finger, deeper restrictions can be accessed and treated. When explaining the properties of the instruments, we often use the analogy of a stethoscope. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, so do the instruments increase significantly what the human hands can feel.
