What is the Graston Technique?

The Graston Technique is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). Using specially designed stainless steel instruments, our practitioners apply precise pressure to the affected areas, effectively identifying and treating areas of soft tissue dysfunction. This technique is particularly effective for breaking down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, promoting faster healing and enhanced mobility.

How Does the Graston Technique Work?

The Graston Technique works by breaking down scar tissue and fascial restrictions that often develop due to trauma or overuse injuries. The key processes involved include:

  • Breaking Down Scar Tissue and Fascial Restrictions: The stainless steel instruments detect and break down areas of scar tissue and adhesions in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, addressing issues related to strained muscles or pulled ligaments.
  • Stretching and Reorganizing Connective Tissue: This technique stretches the connective tissues, helping to rearrange their structure, improve flexibility, and restore normal function to the soft tissue.
  • Promoting a Healing Environment: By stimulating a local inflammatory response, the Graston Technique encourages the body to initiate a natural healing process, creating a better environment for soft tissue repair and regeneration.
