Graston Technique®

We offer the Graston Technique® for injury treatment and rehabilitation.  It is an advanced method to decrease pain and improve function.  This remarkable procedure allows us to detect and treat areas of "scar tissue" or adhesions in muscles, tendons and ligaments that can reduce our range of motion and cause pain.  

In the healing process, our body attempts to repair those areas by creating "scar tissue," much like the scar that forms on the skin when you have scraped or banged your knee.  

Dysfunction:  In time, we can have a build up of this fibrous scar tissue, particularly in the muscles, tendons and ligaments that get alot of use. This can lead to pain and dsysfunction because this replacement tissue lacks the strength and flexibility of healthy tissue (in some areas, it may even mat down and entrap a nerve).

Graston TechniqueGT Instruments:   The Graston Technique® allows us to better detect and treat these areas because it uses a stainless steeel instrument that glides along a patient's muscle, tendons or ligaments, with the right amount of pressure to detect just where the scar tissue or restrictions are located.

When these knots or bands of scar tissue are encountered, both the clinician and the patient sense a restriction, almost like a speed bump or a granular feeling.  The instrument can then be used to identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.  Stretching exercises are used to promote realignment of the fibers into the normal pattern of healthy tissue.

Benefits:  The benefit of the Graston Technique® is not only in detection of restrictions or adhesions, but also in the amount of improvement that takes place in a short amount of time.
