What Is Graston Technique, and How Can It Help You?

Graston Technique

If you've been struggling with inexplicable soft tissue pain for some time, you may be dealing with accumulations of internal scar tissue that limit your motion and make you feel as if certain parts of your body are caught in a vise. These accumulations of scar tissue are called adhesions, and they can put a real crimp in your quality of life. It's time you take a look at a remarkable, non-surgical healing modality that can give you back your pain-free mobility -- a method known as Graston Technique.

Scarring is actually both a normal process and a desirable one. It's an essential step in tissue healing, one that stabilizes and immobilizes an injury so the tissue can repair itself. Unfortunately, scarring can get out of hand, with scar tissue proliferating and covering areas far beyond the original injury site. When these clumps of scar tissue adhere adjacent tissues to each other, the result is called an adhesion. Adhesions can be quite painful and even inhibit normal physical function. Graston Technique is a method in which special steel instruments are used to detect adhesions beneath the skin. The same tools are then used to break up the scar tissue, freeing trapped muscles, tendons or fascia. It can also boost blood flow and cellular activity at the treatment site, facilitating normal healing.
