"I am a very experienced Physical Therapist. Graston Technique is simply a 'slam dunk' intervention. Restoring range of motion post-op; ridding athletes of chronic, nagging injuries; mobilizing scars; treating acute athletic injuries before they become chronic; and 'curing' patients of chronic neural tingling is easy and fast. The Graston Technique® instruments allow me to easily detect and treat soft tissue lesions that even well-trained hands cannot. I love this technique--and will use it for the rest of my career. (I have already started getting all of my therapists trained in the Graston Technique, because I consider it a skill every excellent orthopedic Physical Therapist must have.)"
