Graston Technique® is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. It enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue, fascial restrictions and range of motion resulting in improved patient outcomes. The techniques are evidence-based and require specific training in order to be certified. Graston Technique is clinically proven to achieve faster and better outcomes for acute and chronic conditions such as Achilles Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, Adhesive Capsulitis, IT Band Syndrome, Lumbar Strain and Plantar Fasciitis.

The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain and locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific areas of pain. Graston Technique is also frequently used as an effective protocol to maintain range of motion.

With a commitment to very high standards, Graston Technique is a strong advocate for proper education. Dr. Cailin Shurson has gone through the M-2 Advanced training and is Graston Certified. Dr. Cailin also has the proper Graston instruments to aid in the best possible treatments.

Graston Technique was originally developed by athletes and is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 24,500 clinicians worldwide – including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers. It is also part of the curriculum at more than 45 respected colleges and universities.
