Graston Technique: Effectively breaks down scar tissue and reduces inflammation that causes pain and restricted mobility.
The Graston Technique involves a combination of stainless steel instruments that break down fibrotic tissue. This immediately identifies areas of restriction. The instruments enable clinicians to treat soft tissue lesions with the depth, pressure and specificity necessary to heal the site of the pain and treat the cause of the discomfort. Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. By incorporating stretching, strengthening and ice in the treatment and rehab process, clinicians can rebuild the soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
GT instruments are not meant to replace a clinician’s hands, but to complement them in a manner not possible with other modalities or soft tissue approaches.
