Graston Technique

Unlock the secret to effective pain relief with the Graston Technique. This groundbreaking treatment method targets soft tissue dysfunction and chronic pain management, offering a non-invasive solution for individuals seeking relief.

Developed by world-renowned athletes, the Graston Technique is a manual therapy that utilizes stainless steel instruments to detect and treat soft tissue dysfunction. The instruments are specifically designed to target areas of fascial adhesions and scar tissue build-up, which can cause pain and limit mobility. The technique promotes optimal recovery and enhances blood circulation by breaking down the adhesions, helping patients regain their active lifestyles.

The Graston Technique is often combined with other treatment modalities, such as stretching and strengthening exercises, to optimize results. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment for patients of all ages and fitness levels.

Conditions Treated with the Graston Technique

The Graston Technique has been successfully used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

1. Tendinitis: The technique effectively treats tendinitis by breaking down adhesions and scar tissue, reducing pain, and promoting healing.

2. Plantar fasciitis: The Graston Technique can alleviate pain and improve mobility by targeting the soft tissue dysfunction associated with plantar fasciitis.

3. Carpal tunnel syndrome: The technique can help relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome by addressing soft tissue dysfunction in the wrist and hand.

4. Golfer’s elbow: The Graston Technique can reduce pain and enhance recovery in golfer’s elbow patients by targeting the affected soft tissues.

5. Muscle strains: The technique can treat muscle strains by breaking down scar tissue and promoting optimal healing.

It is important to note that the Graston Technique should only be performed by a trained and certified healthcare professional, such as a SMC Physicians physical therapist, who has received specialized training in this technique.

The Graston Technique is a valuable tool in physical therapy for treating soft tissue dysfunction and promoting recovery. With its precise application and tailored treatment plans, it has successfully treated a wide range of conditions, allowing individuals to regain their active lifestyles.
