Graston Technique

Graston Technique® (GT)

 

 
Graston Technique, which uses stainless steel instruments, is highly successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions. This remarkable procedure allows us to detect and treat areas with “scar tissue” or adhesions in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia that can cause you pain and discomfort, reduce your range of motion, and limit your function and performance.
 
During the healing process, your body attempts to repair damaged areas by creating “scar tissue,” much like the scar that forms on the skin when you scraped or banged your knee. Unfortunately, this scar tissue lacks the strength and flexibility that normal healthy tissues possess, resulting in residual pain and dysfunction. The GT instruments allow us to detect, treat, and potentially minimize these problematic areas so that you can function properly.
 
GT effectively treats all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute, or post-surgical. Neck pain, tendonitis, postural-related problems, wrist pain, rotator cuff injuries, trigger finger, jumper’s knee, ankle sprains, and golfer’s elbow are just a few of the many conditions that have shown great results with GT.
 
This technique has proven to: decrease your overall time of treatment, foster faster rehabilitation and recovery, reduce your need for anti-inflammatory medications, and resolves your chronic conditions thought to be permanent. What we hear most is, “Wow! I feel so much better. I never thought those instruments could do that!”
 
Great candidates for this treatment include but not limited to: those with chronic injuries, post-surgical conditions, new injuries, swelling, muscle tightness/spasms, decreased range of motion, tendonitis, and leg/arm conditions.
