What is Graston Technique® (GT)?

 

Graston Techique ProviderGraston Technique® (GT) is a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM).  This evidenced based technique incorporates the use of 6 specially designed stainless steel instruments to aid the clinician in the detection and treatment areas of soft tissue lesions or adhesion in muscles, tendons and ligaments that can lead to pain and  dysfunction.A combination of using the GT instruments along with the appropriate rehabilitation stretches and exercises help to accomplish pain free movement and function.  

Patients usually receive 1-2 treatments per week during the span of 4-5 weeks.  Most patients have a positive response by the 3rd or 4th treatment.  The average number of GT sessions per episode of care averages between 6-12 for more chronic conditions.
