Essential Self-Paced Online Training
Your course progress
Graston Technique (GT) therapy is an advanced form of instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), which incorporates the use of six specially designed stainless steel instruments. GT therapy enables clinicians to effectively treat the adverse effects of scar tissue and fascial restrictions as well as improve and maintain optimal range of motion. The purpose of this basic training is to introduce students and clinicians to GT therapy, its clinical applications, physiological effects/benefits, and potential contraindication.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
Demonstrate a working knowledge of the Graston instruments, GT treatments, potential effects, and benefits
Identify and discuss the indications, contraindications (relative and absolute)
Review and develop a better understanding of soft tissue injury healing and potential reactivity to instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (therapeutic and adverse)
Develop skill and competence in the GT application of IASTM to the major regions of soft tissue
