Graston Technique®

Team Rehab Physical Therapy | Graston Technique | Bothell WA

Graston Technique® (GT) is a soft tissue diagnostic and therapeutic method that has been used in outpatient clinics since 1994. GT instruments – made of stainless steel, specifically designed and developed as an alternative to manual transverse friction massage – are used as an aid in the diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue pathology and dysfunction. The instruments provide diagnostic tactile feedback to both the clinician and the patient, as the instruments act as a focused extension of the clinician’s own hands.

By incorporating stretching, strengthening and ice in the treatment and rehab process, clinicians can rebuild the soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.

Graston Technique® is clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating:

  • Achilles Tendinosis/itis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cervical Sprain/Strain (Neck Pain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lateral Epicondylosis/itis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Lumbar Sprain/Strain (Back Pain)
  • Medial Epicondylosis/it is (Golfer’s Elbow)
  • Patellofemoral Disorders (Knee Pain)
  • Plantar Fasciitis (Foot Pain)
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinosis/itis (Shoulder Pain)
  • Shin Splints
  • Trigger Finger

Historically, the Graston Technique® has had positive outcomes in 75-90 percent of all conditions treated. It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries, and pre and postsurgical patients.
