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 give therapists an advantage in treating a number of tendon disorders, mobilizing scar tissue, and reducing edema. For instance, in one study of tendinitis around the knee, regular physical therapy resolved the patient's problem 60% of the time, but physical therapy enhanced by this technique resolved the tendinitis 100% of the time.1 For more technical information on the Graston Technique and how it enhances physical therapy results, download our physician newsletter on Graston Technique.



Common diagnoses treated with Graston Technique include:

  • Tennis elbow (Lateral epicondylosis)

  • Rotator cuff tendinosis

  • Post-surgical scar tissue restrictions

  • Patellofemoral pain

  • Myofascial pain syndrome

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Hip bursitis

  • Iliotibial band friction syndrome

  • and many additional musculoskeletal conditions.
