Graston Technique St. Catharines Pain Relief Clinic


Graston Technique is one of the most effective treatments for soft tissue injuries. Graston is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting tissue damage such as scar tissue and inflammation.

How it Works320px-GrastonTechnique_shoulder-treat

The Graston tools assist the practitioner in finding areas of tissue fibrosis and dysfunction. Similar to how a stethoscope amplifies what a practitioner can hear, the Graston instrument amplifies what is felt by the practitioners hand. This allows previously undetected areas of dysfunction to be identified and corrected. Once tissue dysfunction is found, the scar tissue is effectively broken down using the Graston tools. Graston technique is currently the gold standard soft tissue treament for many professional sport organizations and professional athletes.muscle-injury-tissue-progression
