What is it and why do we use it at ORS?:
Graston Technique ® is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization which allows the therapist to effectively address scar tissue follow surgery, edema, and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes.
The Graston Technique® was developed in the early 90’s by a former athlete who experienced knee stiffness and tightness following a water skiing accident. He coupled his knowledge of machining with researchers at Ball State University in Indiana to develop the Graston® instruments and treatment protocols. The technique of cross fiber massage is grounded in the works of James Cyriax, an English Orthopedist.
