Dr. Mark Glesener and Graston Technique®


Dr. Mark Glesener was one of the early adopters of GT in the St. Charles area, in fact he is 1 of only 2 practitioners practicing Graston Technique® in St. Charles, according to the official website.  He has found it to be extremely helpful in treating his athlete's as well as his non athletic patients.  Because of the success Dr. Glesener has had with GT he is able to decrease the number of visits a patient needs to return to top performance.  For example:  a knee injury that would typically take between 12 to 15 visits can now be fixed in as little as 8 visits utilizing the Graston Technique®Here is some information gathered from the Graston website to help explain any questions you may have, enjoy...

History of the Graston Technique®


The Graston Technique®, researched at Ball Memorial Hospital and Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, was conceived by an athlete who suffered a debilitating knee injury while water skiing.

Frustrated at the lack of rehabilitation progress following surgery and conventional therapy, he applied his professional background in machining to create the initial Graston Technique® instruments to treat his soft tissue injury.

In 1994, TherapyCare Resources Inc., parent company of Graston Technique®, opened an outpatient clinic in Indianapolis, where outcome data was gathered on a wide range of chronic and acute injuries. Five years later, the company turned all of its attention to teaching and training clinicians and research on the technique.

Today, there are more than 12,500 clinicians worldwide-including athletic trainers, chiropractors and therapists-who use the Graston Technique® protocol to effectively detect-treat-resolve a myriad of connective soft tissue dysfunctions. There are also more than 200 professional and amateur sports organizations and some 1,200 outpatient facilities that use GT.

Graston Technique® is part of the curriculum at 49 respected colleges and universities and has participated in or is engaged in research projects at Indiana University, Texas Back Institute, New York Chiropractic College and St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. The company has five U.S. patents on the instruments and technique method.
