Graston technique is instrument-assisted, soft-tissue management utilizing six differing stainless steel instruments that conform to differing body regions. Graston instruments are used by numerous professional and collegiate teams to help manage and rehabilitate overuse and adhesive soft tissue injuries.
Treatment creates a "controlled micro-trauma" to the involved tissues that in turn signal the body's reparative components to realign and release the gummed up and dsyfunctional tissue.
Conditions commonly treat by Graston include:
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fascitis
- Rotator cuff syndrome
