Graston Technique®

Identifies and treats areas of scar tissue that are hindering the body’s natural range of mobility

The Graston Technique® identifies and treats areas of scar tissue that are hindering the body’s natural range of mobility. When the body is injured, thick bands of scar tissue can form at the site of injury. The Graston Technique® is used to identify the locations where these scar tissue bands are present. The treatment technique separates and breaks down the scar tissue across connective tissue and muscle fibers. Our chiropractors use specially designed instruments to detect scar tissue locations. Just as a fine comb running through hair will “catch” on a knot or tangle, so too will these instruments “catch” along a piece of scar tissue. Once the scar tissue has been identified, our chiropractors will use the instrument to safely break up the tissue so it can be absorbed by the body and fully healed.

Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating. Graston Technique® therapy is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post- surgical. GT therapy can help you enjoy life again.
