The Graston Technique, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians - including athletic trainers, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists - and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

The specialized instruments allow for soft tissue release from plantar fascitis, hip flexor pain, elbow and wrist tendinitis and other troublesome muscle and scar tissue problems. www.grastontechnique.com
