Graston Technique® (GT) is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute, or post-surgical. GT can help you enjoy life again. The unique technique and instruments enable physical therapists to address scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation and to administer effective range of motion maintenance programs. The non-invasive technique uses specially designed stainless-steel instruments to help the clinician identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
GT allows a clinician to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change yet be sensitive to patient pain and tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions, they help break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. It will help transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
Graston Technique® can help with the following:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
