Benefits of the Graston Technique
August 20, 2013

For those of you who have never heard of or experienced the Graston Technique, it is used to help with the breakdown of scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The tools are made for specific parts of the body and help detect and treat chronic inflammation and soft tissue fibrosis.

Stop putting it off. Get in today!

By combining this technique with corrective exercise, stretching, and modalities clinicians can help the healing process to rebuild the appropriate tissue. We also see many patients who come in solely for Graston as it has many benefits on its own.

The treatment time for each restriction is approximately 30-60 seconds per spot, while bruising and pain are avoided to provide comfort for the patient.

Graston may be incorporated in the treatment of:

Achilles Tendonitis

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Tennis Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow

Lumbar Strain/Sprain

Patellofemoral Dysfunction

Plantar Fasciitis
