GT provides clinicans with an improved diagnostic and treatment technique for many challenging musculoskeletal conditions. Clinicians use stainless steel instruments to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies area of restriction. These specialized instruments enable clinicians to treat soft tissue lesions in a precise manner.
Once the specific tissue dysfunction has been identified, the the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body.
By devising an individualized plan incorporating stretching, strengthening, and ice, clinicians can rebuild the soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
Patients usually receive two treatments per week during a four- to five-week period. Most patients have a positive response by the third to fourth treatment. Historically, the Graston Technique has had positive outcomes in 75–90 percent of all conditions treated.
