Graston Technique Provider

Graston Technique® is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes.

The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of the GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function.

The Technique also:

  • Improves diagnostic treatment

  • Increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably faster and 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. Historically, the Graston Technique® has had positive outcomes in 75-90 percent of all conditions treated. It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries, and pre- and post-surgical patients.
