Therapeutic Methods: Graston Technique Effectivness on Pitchers Cuff Muscles


#1

I’ve heard that the Graston Technique can be useful for improving blood flow and function to the shoulder muscles, particularly in pitchers. Has anyone had experience receiving this form of treatment? Are their any other therapeutic methods you experienced with?

I wonder if this stuff really improves function of the shoulder? or if it feels good in the moment, (like picking a scab) and doesn’t provide any real benefit.

That is a really old article, here is a link to all of the evidence on Graston. I used it in pro baseball for many years before I left to private practice:
