Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted technique for soft-tissue mobilization. This technique is commonly used to treat injuries to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which are among the most common causes of pain and disability. These conditions usually arise from repetitive stress, acute injuries or other causes. They often result in many uncomfortable symptoms including stiffness, inflammation, referred pain, and decreased range of motion, among others. Our providers use the Graston Technique in Austin to relieve soft-tissue pain while restoring health and function to the affected area.

This innovative, non-intrusive technique features the use of ergonomic instruments to assist in the mobilization of soft tissue. The provider uses these tools to gently “scrape” the surface of the affected areas to break up static, tense tissues. This frees oxygen-rich fluid to flow through while restoring health and function to the area.
