How the Graston Technique Can Help You Find Relief from Pain, Tension, and Injuries
Soft tissue injuries can be small, nuanced, and hard to detect. They can impact your ability to carry out everyday activities. Untreated, they will result in chronic pain, scar tissue, and trouble with mobility.
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.
The instruments used in the Graston Technique are designed to help your chiropractor detect scar tissue and other soft tissue tears that are hard to detect. These instruments also help treat the injury, rapidly accelerating the healing process.
The New Gold Standard of Chiropractic Care An Ideal Treatment for Athletes
Drs. Jorgensen and Gilbert both are certified in the Graston Technique and Active Release Techniques, both of which are considered gold-standard treatments for soft tissue pain. These therapies help reduce recovery time without the need for pain and anti-inflammatory medication.
