Applicable Across Multiple Disciplines

One of the significant advantages of the Graston Technique is its applicability across diverse professions focusing on the musculoskeletal system. Such specialists include:

  • Hand therapists
  • Occupational and physical therapists
  • Athletic trainers
  • Chiropractors

Specifically targeting fascial restrictions and scar tissue, the technique aims to reclaim the patient’s full motion range. We ensure our patients are aware that GT is non-invasive, implying there’s no need for needles or any other medical implements to be introduced into the body. Special stainless-steel instruments are employed to further identify the body areas requiring attention.

Understanding the Graston Technique

During a treatment using Graston Technique, your chiropractor uses specialized stainless steel instruments to target and treat your tissues. This method is effective and gentle, and when used in combination with other therapies, its benefits can be maximized. As the instruments glide over your body, they help break up adhesions, release fascial restrictions, and reduce scar tissue. The treatment continues until the affected fibers have been addressed or noticeably reduced. By the end of the session, you can expect to experience reduced pain and improved mobility.

The Advantages of the Graston Technique

With a clearer understanding of the Graston Technique’s workings, it’s easier to appreciate the numerous benefits the technique offers over other tissue restoration treatment options. One exceptional feature of the Graston Technique is that your treatment duration is substantially reduced, typically to two weekly treatments spanning four to five weeks. This expedited healing means you can resume your regular activities sooner than with other soft tissue repair methods. Another positive outcome is that your dependence on costly anti-inflammatory medications can be significantly reduced. Moreover, you might finally find respite from persistent conditions once deemed incurable.
