With over 24,500 clinicians using Graston Technique, it is now considered the industry standard and an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM). It is used in Graston Technique is an effective, non-invasive procedure for treating acute and chronic adhesions and scarring caused by surgery, soft tissue injuries, and overuse of muscles.
The stainless steel instruments transmit a unique vibration assisting the clinician pinpoint and break down the scar tissue and fascial adhesions, which would otherwise be difficult to feel only using your hands, accelerating the recovery process.
Graston Technique is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency and is fast becoming one of the best soft tissue techniques available for soft tissue injury.
We use Graston Technique alongside our joint mobilization and corrective exercise to address and correct biomechanical deficiencies and imbalances such as restricted joints and tight muscles.
How can Graston Technique help you?
Graston has been shown to be effective in the treatment of many soft tissue injuries.
If you have one of these problems Graston Technique could help you:
Instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. Instruments provide the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions and treat the affected area.
The introduction of controlled microtrauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response.
Microtrauma initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur.
