The Graston Technique is a method of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. Clinicians who are trained and accredited in the Graston Technique use stainless steel instruments to assess and treat soft tissue dysfunction in patients with acute and chronic injuries.
The instruments serve both a diagnostic and treatment function. Clinicians use them to identify areas of restriction, fibrosis, or dysfunctional soft tissue. Once identified, treatment professionals can use the same instruments to help relieve pain and induce healing.
