The Graston Technique is essentially a type of therapy that uses instruments to assist in the mobilization of soft tissues of the body. It is a very popular technique that gives patients a great deal of relief.The Graston Technique works by breaking down scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are created by trauma to the soft tissue. This can be the result of strained muscles or pulled tendons. It also reduces restrictions by elongating connective tissue. This effectively changes the structure of the tissue in order to improve function.
The patient benefits by:
- decreased overall treatment time
- faster rehabilitative and recovery
- reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- resolves chronic conditions that were dismissed as permanent
The Graston Technique® Instruments allow a deeper, more sensitive palpation and treatment of fibrotic restricted tissue.
