Sub-group: Manual Physiotherapy
Graston Technique® is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as maintain optimal range of motion. Since 1994, Graston Technique® (GT) has been the leading modality in Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). GT enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions and maintain optimal range of motion in their patients through comprehensive training and education. GT 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 purpose of this basic training is to introduce clinicians to Graston Technique®, it's clinical applications, physiological effects/benefits and potential contraindications.
M1 establishes guidelines for Graston Technique® and the basic framework for static stroke applications. M2 introduces load, movement and adds five new treatment strokes and new procedures for assessing musculoskeletal dysfunction while introducing the principles of regional interdependence and 3-D kinetic chain myofascial applications.
