Graston Technique

graston technique used at access chiropractic and wellness

Graston Technique is a researched and evidence based type of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization that allows practitioners to effectively address scar tissue and restrictions in function. Intense training programs and certification in this technique results in improved patient outcomes.

The technique uses stainless steel tools which are used to detect and effectively treat areas that are identified to have soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Graston technique benefits the patient by:

  • allowing for faster rehabilitation and recovery
  • decreasing the overall time of treatment
  • reducing the need for pain medications
  • resolving chronic conditions that were previously thought to be permanent and unchangeable
  • allowing patients to remain on the job and reduce the need for splints and braces

 

Some of the most common conditions treated are:

  • Ankle Pain (Achilles Tendinosis/itis)
  • Wrist Pain (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
  • Neck Pain (Cervical Sprain/Strain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hamstring Injuries
  • Hip Pain
  • IT Band (Iliotibial Band)
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylosis/itis)
  • Back Pain (Lumbar Sprain/Strain)
