Graston Technique

Graston Technique Instrument Soft Tissue Mobilization is a form of soft tissue mobilization that is used to detect and release scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions. The technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

The Graston technique has been used to treat both acute and chronic soft tissue conditions of the body such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, knee pain, wrist and hand pain, back and neck pain, and post surgical scarring.

Treatments with Eric Polson are usually once per week for six to twelve weeks and also include instruction in stretching, strengthening, and pain control such as icing. Presently, Graston treatment is offered at our Roseville clinic, 651-635-0578.

Our Patients

“After having been in two car accidents and going through different forms of physical therapy for my back and neck at other PT clinics, I was discouraged and wasn't sure that I would regain my strength and mobility. Barry Griffith at PTOSI helped me tremendously, to both figure out the source of my problems and also simultaneously treat me holistically. I am feeling much more confident now.”
