The Graston technique is a therapeutic method for treating disorders of the skeletal muscle and related connective tissue. The method employs a collection of medical grade stainless steel tools of various shapes and sizes, which are used by practitioners to strip adhesions and scar tissue from damaged muscles and tendons. By releasing these adhesions, effective and efficient muscle healing can take place – allowing for proper restoration of movement and function.
Conditions that can be treated very efficiently and effectively using Graston therapy include:
- Early stage and low-grade tennis elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Golfer’s elbow
- Rotator cuff strain
- Postural shoulder, neck and upper back strains
