Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions.
This technique utilizes six specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis and chronic scar tissue.When soft tissues, such as muscle, ligaments and tendons are traumatically injured, or exposed to repeated physical stress our body attempts to heal and repair these structures with fibrotic scar tissue.
This scar tissue is weak, sensitive to pain and lacks the flexibility of normal, healthy, undamaged muscle and connective tissue. Over time, if fibrotic scar continues to develop in the body, movement becomes restricted, muscles weaken and pain results.
The Graston Technique® is not appropriate for every condition. However, it has been proven effective for people with some of the most common conditions we treat in our office including:
- Muscle Strains
- Wrist and Ankle Sprains
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome
- Biceps Tendonitis
- Tennis and Golfers Elbow
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Plantar Fascitis
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Neck Pain
- Back Pain
- Patellar Tendonitis
When the Graston Technique® is combined with chiropractic adjustments, laser therpay, stretching and strengthening exercises, treatment time is reduced, pain decreases and common injuries are resolved in a short period of time.
If you have not experienced the Graston Technique® and you continue to suffer with unresolved injuries, pain and restricted range of motion, please call our office to schedule your consultation today.
