This technique was developed in the mid-nineties by an avid runner with a lingering knee injury. Metal instruments are used to break up the adhesions and scar tissue in tight or injured areas causing a controlled inflammatory response. This response allows the body’s tissues to heal themselves, essentially hitting the reset button on areas that may have healed improperly, sometimes years in the past. This treatment coupled with chiropractic adjustments, stretching, strengthening, and postural recommendations leads to a flexible and pain free area.
Whether one has acute or chronic pain, myofascial restrictions respond quickly to Graston® therapy. Even in the most extreme cases, individuals experience a significant reduction in symptoms within 4-8 treatment sessions.
Some clinical diagnoses that respond well to the Graston® Technique include: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, IT Band Syndrome, Piriformis Syndrome, Low Back Pain, Neck and Shoulder Pain, Patellar Tendonitis, Ankle Sprain, Hamstring Strain, Tennis Elbow, Rotator Cuff Syndrome, Achilles Tendonitis, and Plantar Fasciitis. Graston® Technique can help loosen tight muscles, increase your range of motion and help heal old or new injuries, improving performance and quality of life.
