The Graston Technique utilizes a set of stainless steel instruments that are drawn over your skin to reduce underlying scar tissue and fascial restrictions. Since many long-standing spinal problems produce inflammation, muscle changes and fibrotic scar tissue, this approach is helpful in creating significant, long-term changes to soft tissues throughout your body.
The hand instruments we use allow a deeper, more sensitive palpation and treatment of restricted tissues. Since the metal instruments do not compress like the fat pads of the fingers, deeper restrictions can be accessed and resolved. Plus, their concave/convex shapes mold to the various contours of your body for greater comfort and effectiveness.
Originally developed for the treatment of athletic injuries, patients report excellent results with both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries:
- Decreased recovery time
- Reduces need for medications
- Resolves long-standing conditions
As we pull our instruments across adhesions and scar tissue, patients report a temporary tightening, then a pleasant sense of release. Repeated visits help resolve these areas of scar tissue and improved muscle tone can be restored.
