Graston Technique

What is the Graston Technique?

Graston Technique is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization used to help break down scar tissue and reduce inflammation that causes pain and restricted mobility. The stainless steel instruments help clinicians effectively detect and treat soft tissue restrictions. By incorporating Graston technique with stretching, strengthening, and modalities in the rehab process, clinicans can help rebuild the soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
