The Graston Technique® is a remarkable procedure that allows us to detect and treat areas of scar tissue or adhesions in muscles, tendons and ligaments. Scar tissue can lead to pain and dysfunction because the replacement tissue lacks the strength and flexibility of healthy tissue. Scar tissue may even mat down and entrap nerves, causing pain, numbness, and loss/decreased muscle function. The Graston Technique® allows us to utilize stainless steel instruments to “break up” restrictions or adhesions. Graston® promotes increased functioning of individual muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which ultimately allows tissues to work optimally as a functional group.
