Graston Technique

Graston TechniqueGraston Technique ® is a method of diagnosing and treating soft tissue problems using Graston Technique Instruments. The GT instruments are stainless steel and are designed as an alternative to manual transverse friction massage. The instruments provide diagnostic tactile feedback to both the clinician and the patient as the instruments act as a focused extension of the clinician’s hands.

The soft tissue pathology most often treated with Graston Technique include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cervical pain
  • De Quervain’s syndrome
  • Epicondylitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • IT band syndrome
  • Joint Sprain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Muscle Strain
  • Painful Scars
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Post Fracture Pain
  • Tendinitis

Patients usually receive one or two treatments per week during a 4-5 week period. Most patients have a positive response by the 3rd or 4th treatment.

Benefits of the Graston Technique include:

  • Decreased treatment time for results
  • Quicker rehabilitation and recovery
  • Reduced need for anti-inflammatory medications
  • Patients remain able to engage in everyday activities during the treatment period.
