We are pleased to provide patients with an innovative and proven approach to the diagnosis and treatment of connective soft tissue injuries, Graston Technique. The Technique is performed with patented stainless steel instruments designed to detect and treat soft-tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation in order to reduce pain and restore function.
When connective tissue, such as muscle, ligaments or tendons becomes restricted or scarred, it can result in pain, tenderness, and loss of flexibility and motion. It is not unusual to find a restriction in one part of the body that produces pain and dysfunction in another area, commonly known as the kinetic chain.
Hospitals, clinics, professional and university sports teams and industry rely on Graston Technique for the treatment of injuries.
Treatment By Graston Technique
Graston Technique treatment protocols may also include the use of heat, ice and rehabilitation to restore patients to their pre-injury level of activity. Muscle re-education, in addition to stretching and strengthening exercises, are employed to provide the patient with optimal results within a minimal number of treatments. Following and staying with the plan of treatment is critical to achieving the clinical goals set by the clinician and the patient. Without full commitment to treatment, a positive outcome may not occur.
Although it is not unusual to experience some discomfort during initial treatment, it should dramatically lessen within a short period of time. Mild to moderate bruising may take place during the process of breaking down old scar tissue. During the course of treatment, daily consumption of 6-8 glasses of water, along with a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, will also prove beneficial.
Graston Technique is proven advanced technology for the treatment of connective soft tissue injuries. The success of treatment will be directly proportionate to your commitment to the treatment plan established for you by your clinician. If you have any questions, please talk to your clinician.
