Graston Technique, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way
clinicians — including athletic trainers, chiropractors, physical
therapists, occupational therapists — and patients view treatment of
acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.
Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted
soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break
down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes
specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically
detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or

History of the Technique
The Graston Technique offers many
advantages and benefits:
• Decreases overall time of treatment
• Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
• Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
• Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
here to see what experts and researchers have to say about the Graston Technique.
Six stainless steel instruments form
the cornerstone of Graston Technique:
Graston Technique Instruments allow a deeper, more sensitive
palpation and treatment of fibrotic restricted tissue."

The curvilinear edge of the patented
Graston Technique Instruments combines with their concave/convex shapes
to mold the instruments to various contours of the body. This design
allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician’s hands,
and maximum tissue penetration.
Just as a stethoscope
amplifies what the human ear can hear, so do the instruments increase
significantly what the human hands can feel.
