GrastonTechnique_shoulder-treatGraston Technique (GT) 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.

Originally developed by athletes, Graston Technique is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 17,500 clinicians worldwide – including Doctors of Chiropractic, Physical and Occupational Therapists, Hand Therapists, Massage Therapists and Athletic Trainers.

Six stainless steel instruments form the cornerstone of Graston Technique®


The curvilinear edge of the patented Graston Technique Instruments combined with their concave/convex shapes to mold the instruments to various contours of the body. This design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician’s hands and maximum tissue penetration.

Since 1994, Graston Technique (GT) has been the leading modality in Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). GT enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions and maintain optimal range of motion in their patients through comprehensive training and education. GT is clinically proven to achieve faster and better outcomes for acute and chronic conditions such as Achilles Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, Frozen Shoulder, Tennis Elbow, Neck and Low Back Strain, Plantar Fasciitis and much more.
