The Graston Technique focuses on breaking up restrictions in soft tissue that are caused by injuries and that limit your range of motion. This includes breaking up scar tissue and fascia restrictions and stretching connective tissue. Scar tissue can be particularly problematic in cases of pain that persists after an injury, as it triggers a dysfunction cycle of the nervous system that creates symptoms of chronic pain. The instruments used in the Graston Technique breaks down these restrictions to free up range of motion and disrupt the pain feedback cycle.
When your chiropractor uses the Graston Technique, he or she will use stainless steel instruments to first detect areas of soft-tissue injury and then to break up the restricted tissue. Although some minor discomfort may occur, the treatment is not painful. Your chiropractor will combine the Graston Technique with other forms of chiropractic adjustments and exercises to help you get maximum pain relief.
The number of Graston Technique treatments you will need depends on the nature of your injury and the severity of your symptoms. Most patients get between six and 12 treatments over the course of four to five weeks. Your chiropractor will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
