Graston Technique

Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by nearly 5000 clinicians—including athletic trainers, chiropractors, hand therapists, occupational and physical therapists. Dr. Jess and Dr. Lelke provide Graston services at Innersport. A few of the conditions that they have personally treated with great success are: • ITB Syndrome • Plantar Fascitis • TMJ Dysfunction • Achilles Tendonitis • Rotator Cuff Injuries • Tennis Elbow (Climber’s Elbow) • Trigger Finger • Ankle and Knee Sprains • Neck and Back Strains For the patient: • Decreases overall time of treatment • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent • Continues to engage in everyday activities Six stainless steel instruments form the cornerstone of Graston Technique® The curvilinear edge of the patented Graston Technique® Instruments combines with their concave/convex shapes to mold the instruments to various contours of the body. This design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician's hands and maximum tissue penetration. The Graston Technique® Instruments, much like a tuning fork, resonate in the clinician's hands allowing the clinician to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress as do the fat pads of the finger, deeper restrictions can be accessed and treated. When explaining the properties of the instruments, we often use the analogy of a stethoscope. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, so do the instruments increase significantly what the human hands can feel. For more information:
