Our team is credentialed in a innovative and proven approach to the diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue injuries, Graston Technique is performed with patented stainless steel tools designed to detect and treat soft-tissue adhesions or chronic inflammation in order to reduce pain and restore function.
Our bodies rely on motion to achieve optimal health. When our soft tissues ( muscle, ligaments or tendons) becomes injured due to scar tissue adhesions it can result in pain and loss of function. It is very common to experience pain in one part of the body when a soft tissue restriction is in another. Biomechanical analysis can diagnose the problem area quickly so treatment is effective and efficient.
GT is widely used amongst many disciplines. Hospitals, industrial therapists, outpatient centers, as well as, sports teams of any level rely on Graston to get better fast..
GT treatment protocols may include warm-up activities, the use of heat, ice, therapeutic taping and rehabilitation exercises to help patients reach their treatment goals. GT patients may experience some discomfort during treatment, however if full commitment is given GT may dramatically lessen the injury time of the patient. Some light bruising may take place during the process of breaking down old scar tissue. This is a normal occurrence in some treatment of specific injuries. Anti-inflammatory diets and increasing water consumption is recommended to speed the healing process.
