The Graston Technique
Last month, we talked about the Active Release Technique to help heal connective tissue injuries, now let's cover the Graston Technique.
The Graston Technique is a trademarked therapeutic technique for soft tissue mobilization. It uses six patented, stainless-steel instruments designed to detect and treat soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation to reduce pain and restore function. The instruments are specifically designed to break up scar tissue adhesions and allow your body to heal stronger.
At Elite Spine and Sports, we use the Graston Technique to effectively treat tennis elbow, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel syndrome, and even headaches. Studies show the efficacy of Graston Technique result in increased blood flow to the affected area, a reduction in tissue viscosity, an interruption of pain, and increased range of motion.
If you have an injury that has not been treated effectively, come in to Elite Spine and Sports. We strive not only to eliminate pain but restoring strength and proper movement patterns to prevent the pain from returning.
