"I received Graston Technique® treatment on my hand following ORIF surgery on the base of my first metacarpal, and I am amazed at the results! I've noticed a reduction in swelling and an immediate and lasting increase in my range of movement. I could feel and see the improvement in my hand and now look forward to it as part of my overall occupational therapy."

"Even though the stainless steel tools look unusual, the Graston Technique® has brought me much relief. GT breaks up scar tissue fibers and smoothes the tissue underneath. It has increased my range of motion and decreased the inflammation and pain that I've experienced. GT has sped up the recovery time for every one of my injuries."

"Graston Technique® has given me hope where there was none. I've had breast cancer, a double mastectomy, a failed double flap surgery, multiple infections at the sight of the tissue expanders for reconstruction and severe (possibly irreversible) Achilles tendonitis due to Levaquin. I had four large open wounds (13" by 4") for more than 4 months. My legs had chronic swelling and lymphedema as a result of the severe scarring. I found out about Graston Technique® and it was a Godsend. After three weeks, my Achilles tendonitis, which I had for 4 months, was cured. My swelling has been eliminated, my numbness and pain in my legs are gone, and I can exercise and work out now. My chiropractor is working on my reconstruction scars on my breasts. More surgeons should refer patients post-op for GT. I believe it is the only way to resolve issues with severe surgical adhesions."

"Graston Technique® was used to relieve and eliminate plantar fasciitis, soleus and gastrocnemius caused by excessive backpedaling, planting and sprinting forward while officiating NFL games. When my symptoms recurred after normal therapy, my physical therapist and athletic trainer suggested GT. Without a doubt, the recovery accelerated, the pain diminished within days, and the tendons and muscles were allowed
to be stretched and strengthened to eliminate recurrences."

"I had atrophy and numbness from scar tissue on my right pectoral muscle. I tried everything else and recently began receiving Graston Technique® from my physical therapist. I love it. The pump and function is returning to my muscle. I am getting my symmetry back, as well. Thanks so much."
