Graston Technique

Graston Technique® (GT) is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions, resulting in improved patient outcomes. GT uses specially designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. When GT instruments are combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, it leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function. The instruments are also used diagnostically to assess the kinetic chain in an efficient manner.

Strong Evidence Exists for the Following Physiological Effects of GT®?

  • Separates and breaks down collagen cross-links, and splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers
  • Facilitates reflex changes in the chronic muscle holding pattern (inhibition of abnormal tone/guarding leading to pain reduction via improved sensory input)
  • Alters/inhibits spinal reflex activity (facilitated segment)
  • Increases the rate and amount of blood flow to and from the area (angiogenesis vs. immediate local increases in blood flow)
  • Increases cellular activity in the region, including fibroblasts and mast cells
  • Increases histamine response secondary to mast cell activity

What Kind of Results Does GT® Produce?

GT® has had positive outcomes in 75-90% of ALL conditions treated. It is extremely effective in restoring function to patients with Acute and Chronic Conditions, to Pre- & Post-Surgical Patients, and for Maintaining Optimal Range of Motion.
