We are Certified in Graston Technique
Graston is one of the most innovative treatments for musculoskeletal dysfunctions and is used by most professional sports teams. The technique is aimed at ridding problem areas of scar tissue or adhesions (muscle knots) that alter the normal function of the muscles and other connective tissue.
When a problem occurs, the healing process lays down scar tissue to quickly brace the area. Scar tissue is fibrotic and not as flexible as healthy muscle tissue. Scar tissue limits range of motion, and in many instances causes pain, which prevents the patient from functioning as he or she did before.
Graston Technique is a unique approach of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization designed to reduce and reorganize fibrotic restrictions (scar tissue). We often use this technique in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to help fully repair.
