The Graston Technique is a patented manual therapy using stainless steel tools to perform muscle mobilization. It is a kind of soft tissue mobilization mainly used by chiropractors, osteopathic doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and some licensed massage therapists.
How to use?
You can think of the Graston Technique as a deeper, more intense form of manual therapy. Specially trained clinicians use specially designed Graston instruments in two ways. First, to find muscle knots or restrictions. They do this to feel the fibrous or scar tissue that can cause pain by running on your skin or to restrict your movement. Second, they use tools to break down this texture to restore mobility and functionality.
