Simple Technology Improving Injury Treatment & Rehabilitation
Our office utilizes Graston Technique as a safe and effective soft tissue mobilization approach to treating many soft tissue and repetitive strain injuries and conditions. Dr. Mark Korchok has completed extensive post graduate education and passed examinations to become a certified Graston Technique provider. He is one of over 18,000 clinicians worldwide that include physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractic physicians and athletic trainers. Dr. Korchok has implemented Graston technique to athletes of all levels of expertise from high school gymnasts to ProBeach Volleyball athletes.
Graston Technique is a innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables Dr. Korchok to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions thereby restoring functional movement patterns, alleviating pain, and facilitating tissue repair. This technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The sensitivity of utilizing the stainless steel Graston "tools" provides Dr. Korchok with improved diagnostic treatment and detects fibrotic changes to determine tissue elasticity and improvement. This increases overall patient satisfaction and achieves better outcomes.
The Patient Benefits by:
- decreased overall treatment time
- faster rehabilitative and recovery
- reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- resolves chronic conditions that were dismissed as permanent

"The Graston Technique® Instruments allow a deeper, more sensitive palpation and treatment of fibrotic restricted tissue."
—Warren I. Hammer, MS, DC, DABCO
Six stainless steel instruments form the cornerstone of Graston Technique®
The curvilinear edge of the patented Graston Technique® Instruments combines with their concave/convex shapes to mold the instruments to various contours of the body. This design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician's hands and maximum tissue penetration.
The Graston Technique® Instruments, much like a tuning fork, resonate in the clinician's hands allowing the clinician to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress as do the fat pads of the finger, deeper restrictions can be accessed and treated. When explaining the properties of the instruments, we often use the analogy of a stethoscope. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, so do the instruments increase significantly what the human hands can feel.
