CORSI > Graston Technique Ljubljiana


Course Description and Goals:

The  Graston Technique® is an advanced form of instrument-assisted, soft  tissue mobilization, which incorporates the use of six specially  designed stainless steel instruments. Graston Technique 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  Graston Technique, its clinical applications, physiological  effects/benefits, and potential contraindications.

M1 Prerequisites
M1  participants must  be  fully  licensed  professionals  who  possess  a  well-developed  working knowledge of the human neuro musculoskeletal system and its major structures.
Prior experience with manual therapy and manual soft tissue mobilization techniques are helpful.

Teaching/Learning Methods & Materials
Multiple  teaching  methods  will  be utilized consistent  with  the  various  levels  of  complexity  of  the learning  objectives.  These  will  include  explanations,  demonstrations,  performance,  feedback, teaching, supervised open practice, and case troubleshooting. The vast majority of time is spent in a hand s-on, lab setting. Teaching materials include the M1 PowerPoint presentation, M1 Training Materials.

Clothing Requirement
Most  of  the  training  is  in  a  lab  setting  with  hands -on  instrument  instruction,  so  proper  dress  is required. Proper clothing includes loose -fitting athletic shorts (not spandex). For women, a top that can expose the scapula such as a racerback sports bra, low-cut tank top, or cami will allow your lab partners proper access to the body regions that we will treat.

Clinicians  are treated  with  Graston  Technique®  instruments  during  the  trainings.  Any  condition contraindicated  for  soft  tissue  mobilization  is  contraindicated  for  GT.  We  advise  all  pregnant clinicians  to  consult  their  treating  doctor  or  healthcare  provider  before  registering  or  attending  a course.

M1 Course Objectives
 The primary objective of M1 is to develop an understanding of Graston Technique 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:
I partecipanti saranno in grado di:
Demonstrate a working knowledge of the Graston Technique instruments, Graston Technique treatments, potential effects, and benefits.

Identify and discuss the indications, contraindications (relative and absolute) of the GrastonTechnique®.

Identify and discuss the indications, contraindications (relative and absolute) of the GrastonTechnique®.

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 Graston Technique application of IASTM to the major regions of soft tissue.
