Course Date:

April 7-8, 2018

Course Location:

Northeastern University
Behrakis Health Sciences Center
4th Floor

Course Description:

M1-Basic Training:
Graston Technique® (GT) therapy is an advanced form of instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization, which incorporates the use of six specially designed stainless steel instruments. GT therapy enables clinicians to effectively treat the adverse effects of scar tissue and fascial restrictions as well as improve and maintain optimal range of motion. The purpose of this basic training is to introduce clinicians to GT therapy, its clinical applications, physiological effects/benefits, and potential contraindication.

M2-Advanced Training:
This course will emphasize a Graston Technique® (GT) therapy examination and treatment approach for musculoskeletal dysfunction/mechanical pain that can be applied in all patient cases.

Components of the GT therapy examination will include movement loss, lesion localization and resistive testing. Preventative/corrective exercises to augment the GT therapy intervention will be discussed. Participants will learn to select and implement the most efficient and effective GT therapy interventions, while restoring function and alleviating pain. The goal of this course is to advance the clinician’s skills in the successful management of musculoskeletal dysfunction using Graston Technique® therapy and movement.
