Here's What our patients have to say about the Graston Technique...

Graston Technique is very effective in reducing knots and deep tissue trigger points not reachable with hands.

— Stacey L., Patient

The Graston Technique seemed to be more helpful in relieving pain in my legs and feet then the traditional massage. I could also feel more trigger points being touched.

— Sharon B., Patient

I cannot say enough about Graston tools. They have been almost like a miracle to me with the physical therapy. I was having a lot of difficulty with walking and weight bearing until my therapist tried these tools. The results of these tools with therapy increased my mobility, standing and walking over 10 feet in the first week! I would definitely recommend the use of the Graston tools whenever appropriate.
