Graston Technique

During physical therapy, Dr. Haider Rizvi uses a variety of treatment options to help a patient achieve the best possible outcome. One method that Dr. Rizvi uses in Wellness One’s state-of-the-art physical therapy facility is the Graston Technique.

Developed to help treat adhesions (or scar tissue) in the muscles, tendons or ligaments, the Graston Technique uses a set of stainless steel instruments to help break down the constricted tissue areas. It was developed and researched at Ball Memorial Hospital and Ball State University by an athlete who suffered from a debilitating knee injury.

During a session including the Graston Technique, Dr. Rizvi will examine the affected area and if he detects that there is constricted tissue he will “work” the area with a series of instruments to help release and break up the constrictions. Dr. Haider will then determine which stretches and exercises will add further benefit to help the area to recover.

Conditions that the Graston Technique has been effectively used to help treat include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Cervical Pain/Strain

  • Lumbar Pain/Strain
  • Achilles Tendinosis
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinosis
  • Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

Patients typically are treated with the Graston Technique for two sessions per week up to approximately five weeks, but may feel positive results in as little as two to three sessions.
