Graston Technique

Gaston Technique uses stainless steel instruments that glide along muscles, tendons and ligaments with a precise amount of pressure to detect and treat areas of  “scar tissue” or adhesions. The instruments are used to “break up” adhesions to decrease pain and improve range of motion and overall function. Stretching exercises may also be used to promote realignment of the fibers into the normal pattern of healthy tissue.

Graston Technique has been effective in the treatment of:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neck Pain
  • Thumb Pain
  • Elbow Pain
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Joint Sprain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Muscle Strain
  • Plantar Fasciits

Each patient is different, but a patient typically receives to Graston Technique treatments per week for four to five weeks. Most people have positive results within just two or three treatments.
