Graston Technique ®

Graston Technique (GT) is an advanced form of treatment that pairs instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (ISTM) with rehabilitative exercises to improve function and pain.  Scar tissue restrictions following trauma and repetitive strain injuries are examined and freed with patented contoured stainless steel instruments on the skin’s surface.


Following tissue mobilization, targeted stretching and strengthening exercises are performed.  Graston Technique has been found to be effective for acute and chronic injuries and in pre and post surgical patients. Originally developed by athletes, GT is now used in hospital outpatient facilities, industrial settings, and for sports.
