Simple Technology - improving injury treatment and rehabilitation
Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated...
Graston Technique® is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or acute and post surgical. The Graston Technique® offers many advantages to the patient such as:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Goodbye scar tissue
Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training, resulting in improved patient outcomes.
The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.
What should be expected with Graston® Treatment?
Treatments to each area last about 30-90 seconds. The first thing most patients notice is a significant improvement in range of motion (flexibility) of the injured area. Some patients experience mild redness or bruising after treatment. While many patients feel some relief after just one treatment, significant relief of myofasciitis is common with 4 treatments. Treatments are generally done once per week and after four treatments generally every few weeks if needed.
