Graston Technique

Regardless of treatment philosophy, it is difficult to dispute the importance of soft tissue work to help correct muscle imbalance, restore proper nerve function, decrease recovery time, and restore proper muscle recruitment and firing patterns.  Graston Technique is an advanced form of myofascial release. The procedure is instrument assisted and is used to detect and release fibrous restrictions or adhesions in the fascia that produce pain, weakness, and functional limitation for the patient.  Graston Technique also works by facilitating the nervous system (allowing the body and brain to better communicate).  The follow are just a few of the conditions that respond well to Graston:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Extremity (hands elbow, etc) pain
  • Shin splints
  • Rotator cuff syndrome
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Plantar Fasciitis
