graston, thumbThe 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.

The 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 chronic inflammation.

"The Graston Technique Instruments allow a deeper, more sensitive palpation and treatment of fibrotic restricted tissue." 

—Warren I. Hammer, MS, DC, DABCO

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.
