Graston Technique Instruments

6-Piece and 3-Piece Instrument Sets

Graston Technique® instruments serve as levers, thus increasing the mechanical advantage and reducing the expenditure of effort by the clinicians when detecting and treating soft tissue lesions.

Different types of rigid materials such as aluminum, plastic, etc. were tried when originally designing the GT instruments. It was determined stainless steel was superior in detecting soft tissue dysfunction. This may be due to the density and qualities of steel to resonate. As the instruments glide over the soft tissue, irregularities are detected and magnified. An unscientific description of the sensation is that it feels like the instrument is moving over gravel or sand.

The use of the GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function. Only clinicians who have been trained and accredited in the GT M1 course are qualified to obtain GT instruments and apply the technique to treat patients.
