Graston Technique Q & A

What is the Graston Technique?

The Graston Technique uses customized tools to break up scar tissue and smooth out the soft tissue underneath. The goal of the Graston Technique is to decrease recovery time.

The team at Synergy Release Sports uses the Graston Technique to address health problems related to scar tissue, including pain and a decreased range of motion. 

The therapists also use the Graston Technique for bodybuilders, improving muscle definition and symmetry. 

Am I a candidate for the Graston Technique?

The team at Synergy Release Sports determines if you’re a candidate for the Graston Technique after your initial evaluation. Synergy Release Sports uses a proprietary system with a multi-step process to identify, treat, and eliminate the source of your pain.

During your initial evaluation, your provider does a thorough exam to find the root cause of your problem so they can customize your synergistic treatment plan. They use the Graston Technique to treat many conditions, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Muscle pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injury scar tissue
  • Post-surgical scar tissue

If you have pain due to scar tissue, then the team at Synergy Release Sports may consider you a candidate for the Graston Technique. 

What happens during the Graston Technique?

Your Graston Technique therapist at Synergy Release Sports customizes your treatment plan to address the root cause of your pain. They use Graston Technique tools to scan your body and then treat the scar tissue.

During treatment, they move the special tool over the affected area using specific massage techniques. Your Graston Technique treatment may take 30-60 minutes. 

It’s not uncommon to feel some discomfort during your session, and you may feel sore and have some bruising after. 

The team recommends using ice packs to ease your discomfort. They also recommend combining your Graston Technique treatment with an exercise program to gain the most benefits. 

What are some of the benefits of the Graston Technique?

Though results vary, you may notice improvements in pain and range of motion following your Graston Technique session at Synergy Release Sports. Other benefits include accelerated healing, reduced recovery time, and decreased inflammation.
