At Barnstable Physical Therapy, we are excited to offer the Graston Technique as part of our comprehensive range of therapeutic services. The Graston Technique is a specialized form of manual therapy that effectively addresses soft tissue injuries and musculoskeletal conditions.

What is the Graston Technique?

The Graston Technique is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue, fascial restrictions, and musculoskeletal imbalances. Using specially designed stainless steel instruments, therapists can precisely target areas of soft tissue dysfunction, promoting faster healing and restoring optimal function.

How Does it Work?

During a Graston Technique session, the therapist applies the instruments to the patient's skin, using specific strokes to identify and break down adhesions and scar tissue. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response, leading to improved blood flow, reduced inflammation, and enhanced tissue repair. The technique is gentle yet highly effective, providing relief for a wide range of conditions, including tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and more.


Benefits of the Graston Technique

  • Pain Relief: By breaking down scar tissue and adhesions, the Graston Technique can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with soft tissue injuries.
  • Improved Range of Motion: By restoring flexibility and mobility to affected muscles and joints, the Graston Technique helps improve range of motion and functional movement patterns.
  • Accelerated Healing: By promoting blood flow and stimulating the body's natural healing mechanisms, the Graston Technique can speed up the recovery process for acute and chronic injuries.
  • Enhanced Athletic Performance: Many athletes utilize the Graston Technique to address soft tissue injuries and optimize their performance, allowing them to train harder and recover faster.
