Graston Technique® is a therapy for soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia). The technique uses six specially designed tools that contour to the different areas of the body. Although the tools are stainless steel, they are not sharp.
During the healing process, our body often repairs injured soft-tissues with adhesive scar tissue. Over time, we can have a build-up of this non-moveable scar tissue, which can restrict normal movement, stiffen and tighten an area, and lead to pain and dysfunction. Graston instruments are used to glide along the involved areas, allowing Dr. Lassiter to locate and heal the damaged areas.
In Details Magazine‘s August, 2012 issue, Michael Phelps credited Graston Technique® as the key in helping him to recover from his grueling 8-12 hour a day workouts during his training for the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
