Graston technique chiropractic services in Kennewick and Pasco
The Graston Technique is a type of soft-tissue therapy in which the practitioner uses specific instruments to stretch the fascia, break up scar tissue, and reduce inflammation. This technique helps soft tissue injuries heal better and quicker.
How the Graston Technique Can Help You
Soft tissue injuries can be small, nuanced, and hard to detect by hand, yet they can impact a person’s ability to do just about anything. It’s important to seek out professional chiropractic treatment if you are experiencing persistent pain or have sustained an injury.
The instruments used in the Graston Technique are specially designed to help your chiropractor detect scar tissue and other soft tissue lesions that he or she would not ordinarily be able to detect. These instruments also help treat the injury, rapidly accelerating the healing process.
