We are pleased to provide patients with an innovative approach for the treatment of connective soft tissue injuries. Hospitals, clinics, professional and university sports teams as well as industries rely on Graston Technique for the treatment of injuries.
When connective tissue, such as muscle, ligaments or tendons become restricted or scarred, it can result in pain, tenderness, 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.
What is a Graston Technique Treatment?
Graston Technique is performed with patented stainless-steel instruments. 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. Most patients report pain reduction and improved function within the two first treatments.
Number of Graston Technique Treatments
Factors such as age, history of the condition, occupation and lifestyle will determine the number of times that you will be treated. The average number of treatments is 6-8. Generally treatment is performed no more than twice a week unless the clinical circumstances dictate otherwise.
