Graston Therapy

The Best Care

The general goals of the therapy are to reduce the patient's pain and increase function through a combination of:

  • Breaking down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft tissue (e.g., a strained muscle or a pulled ligament, tendon, or fascia).

  • Reducing restrictions by stretching connective tissue in an attempt to rearrange the structure of the soft tissue being treated (e.g., muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments).

    • See Myofascial Therapy for the Treatment of Acute and Chronic Pain

  • Promoting a better healing environment for the injured soft tissue.

The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. It is one of a number of manual therapy approaches that use instruments with a specialized form of massage/scraping the skin gently.

 

The therapy is designed to help the practitioner identify areas of restriction and attempt to break up scar tissue.
