To schedule an appointment with one of our physiotherapists, contact Family Physiotherapy. We will recommend a proper treatment plan to achieve proper recovery.

What is Graston Technique? 

Graston technique necessitates a stainless-steel tool used by physiotherapists to complete a soft tissue mobilization to release the scar tissue, progress motion range, and lessen fascial restriction. With the aid of the device, a measured microtrauma is established around parts of soft tissue fibrosis or excessive scarring. It triggers a local inflammatory answer that enables the healing and repairing of affected parts of your body. 

The effect of the up and down movement of the instrument over your affected parts develops adhesions to break up your scar tissues and constrained fascia. As the process continues, the range of motion gets reestablished, adhered fibers are concentrated, and finally, pain is eliminated.  The primary purpose of this form of therapy treatment is to help you remodify the affected soft tissues into normal functioning tissues in your body part.

How can the Graston technique be used to treat your pain?

Your muscles comprise different fibers. When these fibers become constricted, toxins are formed. The Graston Technique is used to identify areas of muscle adhesions and scar-like tissue to relieve pain around affected spots in your body using a stainless-steel instrument and a massage practice. 

At Family Physiotherapy, you will be introduced to some specific exercises to warm you up before using a Graston instrument to massage and stretch affected parts to relax the muscle tissues of your body.  At this point, your movement patterns will restore and increase blood circulation in injured tissues. 

Graston technique is safe, non-invasive, and 100% effective in treating chronic pain and inflammation. If you undergo this kind of therapy, you may likely experience minor discomfort and bruises after completing the program. You should make sure to notify your physiotherapist if the treatment process is causing you pain. But we can assure you that our staff will try as much as possible to make the process seamless and pain-free.
