If you have never heard of Graston Tools you are certainly not alone. Graston Tools are instruments which help therapists break down scar tissue and restrictions in the connective tissue throughout the body.

 

They might look slightly scary at first but these stainless steel instruments allow the therapists to really get into the scar tissue much more efficiently than a therapist can manually with their hands alone.

Scar tissue can occur in any area of the body following an injury. Once you have scar tissue you generally receive a smaller blood supply to that area than normal tissue and the ability to stretch is reduced. Scar tissue can build up around muscles, tendons and ligaments as the body goes through the natural healing process. As a result of this thickened tissue, movement is impaired and/or you may feel pain on movement. Using the Graston Tools our therapists can break down the scar tissue much more effectively, thus relieving your pain and
returning you to normal movement.

What are the benefits?

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

The Graston technique has the potential to treat acute and chronic conditions such as:

  • Lower back muscle strain or sprain
  • Achilles tendinosis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cervical sprain/strain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff tendinosis
