The primary objective of Essential Training is to develop an understanding of Graston Technique© therapy (GT) and how to apply it into the full spectrum of musculoskeletal treatment approaches. The course also instructs clinicians on the proper use of the instruments.
By the end of the training, you will be able to:
- Demonstrate a working knowledge of the Graston Technique© brand instruments, GT treatments, potential effects, and benefits.
- Identify and discuss the indications, contraindications (relative and absolute) of GT.
- Review and develop a better understanding of soft tissue injury, healing and potential reactivity to instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (therapeutic and adverse).
- Develop skill and competence in the GT application of IASTM to the major regions of soft tissue.
