The Graston Technique, a soft tissue technique to address pain and promote healing.
If you are in pain, we can help by incorporating a specialized soft tissue technique to your treatment plan.
What is the Graston Technique?
Using special instruments, the Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy that massages and gently scrapes the skin. The Graston Technique has been found to help individuals who suffer from scar tissue/muscle restrictions and pain due to an injury. Since scar tissue limits range of motion and may cause pain, the Graston Technique can restore motion to pre-injury level.
- It breaks down scar tissue
- It reduces restrictions by stretching tissue
- It promotes healing to the injured tissue
Is it painful?
No, it may cause minor discomfort and some bruising may occur after the treatment but this is normal.
Why do it?
- Decreases overall treatment time and increases recovery time
- It can reduce the need of certain medications, such as anti-inflammatories
- It can resolve previously considered permanent, chronic conditions
Usually two treatments a week for 4-5 weeks are needed. Most patients begin noticing the affects in as little as the 3rd visit!
