Graston Technique® at Lake Country Physiotherapy | Orillia
Graston Technique® - Soft Tissue Injuries
- Graston Technique® is an innovative form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
- An emollient is placed on the skin in the area to be treated and each instrument employs a bevelled treatment edge. The treatment edge facilitates the breakdown of scar tissue and stimulates blood flow to the injured area, accelerating the natural healing process. There is some mis-information about Graston on the internet: the treatment is not painful and should not cause any bruising.
