There are over 32,000 certified providers of the Graston Technique throughout North America.
Graston Technique originated when an amateur athlete became frustrated with his knee injury and set out to find a solution. Using his background in machinery he was able to create an innovative instrument that can alleviate acute and chronic injuries.
Graston Technique uses stainless steel devices to loosen adhesions that can be quite painful and restrict the movement of your joints.
What is an adhesion? It’s a band of scar tissue that develops when a muscle is overworked or injured.
Adhesions are a natural mechanism that the body uses when it tries to heal itself. It’s a normal response after injury, infection, surgery, and even radiation.
However, adhesions can cause a wide range of problems like back, neck, and joint pain.
Graston Technique loosens and normalizes these adhesions, freeing up your movement, reducing pain, and accelerating healing.
