    WHAT IS GRASTON®?

    Graston Technique® is a certified, instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy that allows clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.

    With the use of specially designed instruments, a practitioner is able to detect and treat areas of muscle, tendon, ligament, and fascia that have become sprained/strained or inflamed. By actively gliding these tools along the injured tissue, Graston can be used to remove restrictions from both acute and chronic injuries that may be causing pain, or limiting your range of motion. At the same time, this motion will increase blood flow and cellular activity in the area, helping your injury to heal faster!

    Why use tools instead of hands? Since the hard surface of the instruments does not compress the way the fat pads of the fingers do, deeper adhesions can be accessed and treated.

    WHAT CONDITIONS CAN GRASTON® TREAT?

    Graston® can treat any soft tissue dysfunction, both acute and chronic. The following conditions have been clinically proven to have faster, more successful outcomes when using Graston®:

    Cervical Sprain/Strain (neck pain)
    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain)
    Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
    Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)
    Rotator Cuff Tendonosis (shoulder pain)
    Lumbar Sprain/Strain (back pain)
    Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain)
    Achilles Tendonosis (ankle pain)
    Plantarfasciitis (foot pain)
    Trigger finger
    Fibromyalgia

    As well as scar tissue from repetitive strain injuries or post-surgical scarring.

    WHO CAN PERFORM GRASTON®?

    Originally developed by athletes and researched by universities and hospitals inIndiana,USAin 1991, Graston Technique® is now used as an interdisciplinary treatment by more than 15,000 clinicians worldwide.

    It may be performed, clinically, by only certified Graston® providers, which may include chiropractors, athletic trainers, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists.

    ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS TO GRASTON®?

    As with any manual therapy, a patient may experience mild to moderate soreness after a Graston® treatment. Due to skin sensitivities and the nature of the treatment, skin irritations including redness, rash, minor bumps, and bruises are also not uncommon. Patients are recommended to ice the affected area following a treatment, to avoid these side-effects.

    Although an ammoliant wax is used to provide a more frictionless surface between the instruments and skin, some skin irritation is often unavoidable. Patients should also note that most Graston® ammoliants contain beeswax. Patient’s should inform their clinician of any allergies, particularly to bees, prior to treatment.

    WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GRASTON®?

    Graston® has been shown to decrease the overall time of treatment by achieving faster recovery times to soft tissue injury. It may also reduce the need for anti-inflammatory medications, and help resolve chronic conditions that are often considered to be permanent.

    In a vocational setting, Graston® can help patients to continue training or working while receiving treatment, reducing the need for splints, braces, and other work-focused or athletic modifications.

    If you have a soft tissue injury, it is likely that Graston Technique® can help you.
