Graston Technique® at Whole Family Chiropractors

Graston Technique on mans backThis innovative and patented new approach to medicine involves an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique. Offered at Whole Family Chiropractors, it’s performed with stainless steel instruments that break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, reducing pain and restoring your function.

When pain is caused by myofascial tightness within the fascial system (the web of connective tissue that spreads throughout the body and surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve blood vessel, and organ to the cellular level) the diagnosis is more difficult, as fascia restrictions do not show up on MRI scans or X-rays.

Reducing the Effects of Trauma

When connective tissues such as muscles, ligaments or tendons become restricted or scarred, it can result in pain, tenderness, and loss of flexibility and motion. It’s not unusual to find a restriction in one or more parts of the body that are producing pain and dysfunction in another area of the body. These restrictions can occur after direct trauma to the body, such as a car accident or sports injury or from repetitive stress on the body over time.

This technology is being used by U.S. Track and Field, professional and college sports teams and in hospitals and clinics. The Graston Technique® decreases your length of treatment, provides faster rehabilitation and recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication and helps in relieving chronic conditions once thought to be permanent.
