The Graston Technique: Utilized at Lethbridge Chiropractic

Graston Technique®

Dr. Workman has also incorporated his love of sports into his practice by taking additional training in Sports Medicine, and has been certified in Graston Technique®.

The Graston Technique, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians, including athletic trainers, chiropractors, physical therapists and occupational therapists and patients, view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. Graston Technique is an innovative way to treat chronic or acute soft tissue injuries; benefits include:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
  • Continues to engage in in everyday activities

Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

The chart below describes some of the injuries that may be treated with the Graston Technique and a study of the average number of treatments along with the success rate. The success rate is based on attainment of an overall outcome, rated from good to complete.
