This course will emphasize a Graston Technique® examination and treatment approach for musculoskeletal dysfunction/mechanical pain that can be applied in all patient cases.

The Advanced Training course objectives are designed to:

  • Advance knowledge of GT examination procedures for assessing musculoskeletal dysfunction while introducing the principles of regional interdependence and functional testing.
  • Enhance clinical decision-making skills during the application of GT.
  • Advance repertoire of GT interventions for the management of musculoskeletal dysfunction/mechanical pain.
  • Develop a higher level of skill acquisition for utilizing GT while introducing movement, resistance, weight bearing, and provocation patterns to treatment.
  • Review major GT concepts covered in the Essential course (eight fundamental strokes, ergonomics, scar & edema techniques, physiology of GT, if necessary).
  • Provide an opportunity for participants to discuss patients that have challenged them since they started incorporating instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) into their practice.
  • Introduce advanced GT skills incorporating IASTM with movement, with resistance, in weight bearing, during provocation, and with therapeutic exercise typically prescribed for common musculoskeletal pathologies.
  • Review selected case studies that illustrate advanced clinical applications of IASTM.
  • Share most recent research findings pertaining to IASTM.
