Graston Technique® incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables practitioner to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function.

Graston® physical therapy is successful due to its ability to interrupt the pain cycle and scar tissue formation, which leads to changes in soft tissue flexibility and range of motion. Moreover, The Graston® massage instruments help to amplify soft tissue restrictions, like a stethoscope amplifies the sound of a heartbeat. Graston Technique is an innovative stainless steel instrument that our physical therapists use to assist soft tissue mobilisation. This can help us restore your function and improve your range of motion.

As a result, Graston Technique® has been effective in the treatment of:

Here is list of some of the most common conditions treated with Graston Technique® therapy.

🌱Neck Pain (Cervical Sprain/Strain)

🌱Back Pain (Soft Tissue Dysfunction)

🌱Hamstring Injuries

🌱Hip Pain (Soft Tissue Dysfunction)

🌱Shoulder Pain (Soft Tissue Dysfunction)

🌱Scar Tissue

Our body is comprised of muscles, fascia, ligaments, and tendons. Injuries/traumas to these tissues play a significant role in the pain and dysfunction we experience, such as reduced range of movement to tightness and general aches. While it may not sound like a serious injury, a simple back muscle strain in the back can cause excruciating pain and difficulty with movement.


How can Graston Technique help me?

The specifically shaped, highly polished and smooth steel tools used for Graston Technique promote normal movement of the muscle fibres and fascia. Developed from traditional Chinese Gua Sha, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization have proven to be very effective at treating soft tissue problems. The Graston tools allow greater efficiency and consistency, which means quicker results, thus allowing the provider to move on to other areas on the body that need treatment. This helps lead to superior and faster recovery times as well being able to see more patients overall.

Graston Technique has several therapeutic benefits such as:

  • Reduced patients need to consume anti-inflammatory medication
  • Promoted faster recovery from illness and injuries
  • Treated acute conditions
  • Quickly broken down scar tissue from intense training

What to expect  

1st visit – History of symptoms, digital posture assessment, range of movement tests and neurological test when applicable. Treatment of 1 area.

Follow up visits – Treatment of 2 areas plus re-assessment (Progress will depend on several factors however, re-assessment is a key to check progress in terms of range of movement and/or areas of soft tissue dysfunction).
