The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy that your physical therapist uses to treat soft tissue injuries. The unique technique depends on a set of six stainless steel instruments to help ease restriction and pain that accompanies acute, chronic, and post-surgical soft tissue problems.
It’s also beneficial for loosening scar tissue that restricts normal movement.
Collins Physical Therapy Institute uses and loves the Graston Techniques for the many ways it benefits you, such as:
The procedure has an astounding success rate. Between 75-90% of the conditions treated respond positively to the therapy.
During your Graston Technique session, your physical therapist identifies the exact location of your soft tissue problems and guides each of the stainless steel instruments over the area. The tool catches on your problem areas, and your therapist manually glides it back and forth in a massaging motion to release stubborn knots and tension.
The goal is to relieve pain and soreness, so it isn’t meant to hurt at all. However, soft tissues can be quite tender, and the procedure might be uncomfortable as your highly trained physical therapist works to resolve it permanently.
Your physical therapist will pause a few times briefly throughout the treatment to give you breaks, allow you to breathe deeply, and relax. When the procedure is over, you can look forward to long-lasting relief.
