Graston Technique Treatment at The Healing Bridge
Graston is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique. Instead of manual manipulation such as with massage therapy, the Graston Technique employs a collection of specifically sized and shaped stainless steel tools which practitioners use to detect and treat scar tissue and adhesions in muscles and tendons.
By breaking down unhealthy scar tissue and adhesions, the body will form newer, healthier tissue in its place. The Graston method is one of the most effective soft tissue therapies that currently exists, and its rate of success makes it a very worthwhile return on investment.
Benefits of Graston Technique
Especially when combined with traditional chiropractic, Graston Technique is particularly helpful with soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, I.T. Band Syndrome, hamstring strains, and shin splints. It is particularly effective for patients who practice combat sports where muscular scars and contusions are common.
The Graston method has been found to help in 75-90% of the cases where Graston Technique treatments are warranted.
Chiropractic and the Graston Technique
Both Chiropractic and the Graston Technique work particularly well when treatments are conducted in conjunction with each other. Chiropractic adjustment works to address concerns with the bones and joints to affect the muscles, while Graston instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization works at a much deeper level for muscles.
