- Graston Technique® effectively breaks down scar tissue and reduces inflammation that causes pain and restricted mobility. Graston uses stainless steel instruments to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. By incorporating stretching, strengthening, and ice in the treatment and rehab process, the clinician can rebuild the soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue. Graston Technique® has become recognized as standard protocol in several university and hospital settings, including the prestigious Texas Back Institute. GT® is also being used in industrial settings and by over 160 professional and amateur sports teams, including NFL, NBA, NHL, and Major League Baseball teams. Historically, the Graston Technique® has resolved 87% or more of all conditions treated. It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries, and pre and post surgical patients. For more information: www.grastontechnique.com
