Graston Technique®

Chiropractic Portsmouth NH Graston Technique

Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) in Portsmouth NH, New Ipswich NH, and Rindge NH used to break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique involves 6 stainless steel instruments of differing shapes and sizes to effectively detect and treat areas of soft tissue fibrosis (scarring) or chronic inflammation.

Originally developed by Athletes, Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 17,500 clinicians worldwide — including occupational and hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers. The stainless steel Graston Technique® instruments act like a stethoscope enhancing our ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions.
