The Graston Technique was developed by a former athlete and chiropractor, who found that the use of stainless steel instruments was effective in breaking up scar tissue and improving range of motion. The instruments are designed to glide over the skin using a small amount of emollient in order to detect areas of restriction, which can be treated through the application of advanced techniques in pressure delivery and stretching.
During a Graston Technique session, the therapist will use the instruments to massage and stretch the affected area, applying a specific amount of pressure to break up scar tissue and improving mobility. The therapist may also use other techniques such as ice, heat, and stretching to further enhance the treatment.
Graston is a non-invasive treatment option that has been shown to be highly effective in relieving pain while improving motion function and providing pain relief in countless individuals.
Overall, Graston Technique is a valuable tool for many manual therapists and can be a highly effective treatment option for those suffering from muscle and tissue injuries or chronic pain.
