Graston: Effectively Treating Acute and Chronic Injuries
The Graston Technique®, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians — including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors and athletic trainers — and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. Some of the typical injuries that benefit from this treatment are: Low back pain, Neck pain, shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff injuries, knee and ankle injuries, headaches, TMJ, acute and Chronic pain, Pre and post surgical patients. This treatment will help to decrease the amount of treatment time per session along with the length of time spent rehabbing an injury.
Graston Technique® is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect soft tissue fibers or scars. The tools are used by the therapist to manually cross friction massage the affected soft tissue injury.
In short the technique will help to break down scar tissue which will help to improve circulation and range of motion.
The Graston Technique® requires that the therapist must attend the 12-hour M1-Basic Training before being qualified to treat. So before signing up to get this treatment anywhere else make sure the therapist is qualified. For more details and information on this treatment option you can visit www.Grastontechnique.com
