Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables the effective break down of scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Graston is used to glide/comb over areas of injured and fibrotic tissue to create a small amount of trauma to the area. The goal of this is to re-introduce a minor inflammatory process to increase blood flow and initiate and promote the healing process of the affected tissues. Graston is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 11,000 clinicians worldwide including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers. Graston is utilized at some 1,000 outpatient facilities and industrial on-sites, by more than 185 professional and amateur sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at 49 respected colleges and universities.
