Graston Technique

Graston Technique

This technique allows us to detect and treat areas of "scar tissue" or adhesions in muscles, tendons and ligaments that can lead to pain and dysfunction. The doctor uses a stainless steel instrument that glides along a patient's muscle, tendons or ligaments and acts like a "scar tissue" stethoscope. When knots or bands of scar tissue are encountered, both the doctor and the patient sense a restriction or a granular feeling. The instrument can then be used to "break up" this restriction or adhesion. Stretching exercises are then used to promote re-alignment of the fibers so that they behave more like normal, healthy tissue.
