Graston Technique

Using the Graston Technique to Improve Mobility and Range of Motion

Our doctors at Terrapin Care Center are skilled in the Graston Technique, a type of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that breaks down scar tissue. This innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization allows our pain specialists in College Park, MD to detect and break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, plus it helps to maintain optimal range of motion.

The Graston Technique has been the leading modality in Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) since 1994, helping with acute and chronic conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Adhesive Capsulitis
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Lumbar Strain
  • Plantar Fasciitis

As such, we use our expertise and training to address musculoskeletal disorders including problems with fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerve entrapments, headaches, and back pain.

An interdisciplinary treatment, the Graston Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to engage in therapeutic exercises and as a diagnostic tool to locate and treat not only the cause of the symptom but the specific area of pain as well. Lean on the expertise and training of our multi-disciplinary medical pain management clinic, focusing on postural correction, alignment, overall health and well-being to help patients of all ages achieve optimal health and wellness while minimizing unnecessary drugs and invasive surgeries.
