GRASTON TECHNIQUE

The Graston Technique incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function. The Technique separates and breaks down collagen cross-links, splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers, facilitates reflex changes,alters spinal reflux activity, increases the rate and amount of blood flow to and from the area, increases cellular activity in the region and increases histamine response. Graston Technique fosters faster rehabilitation and recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication, resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent, allows you to continue to engage in everyday activities, and decreases the overall time of treatment (www.grastontechnique.com).
