Restore Muscle Function and Minimize the Impact of Scar Tissue

Graston Technique is a treatment method for soft tissue injuries. It involves the use of unique handheld instruments along with a special type of massage. The technique is designed to identify the areas of restriction and break down scar tissue which helps to encourage proper healing of the tissue.

 

Phoenix Physiotherapy Clinic uses Graston Technique for the diagnosis and treatment of scar tissue or chronic muscle pain in Prince George. Our physiotherapists use a cross-friction massage that includes brushing against the scar tissue grain to re-introduce trauma in small amounts to the affected area. Get in touch with us today if you are suffering from scar tissue or muscle pain.  

How It Helps

The Graston Technique is aimed at reducing your muscle pain and improving muscle function. Here is how the treatment helps:

Break down the scar tissue associated with soft tissue trauma (a pulled ligament, tendon, or fascia or a strained muscle)

Reduce fascia restrictions by stretching connective tissue to rearrange the structure of the respective soft tissue

Initiate and promote the healing process of the affected soft tissues

  • What Is Fascia?
    Fascia is a three-dimensional system involving three layers of connective tissue spread from the feet through the head. Fascia restrictions can happen in any or all of the three layers: Superficial fascia - lies directly below the skin, stores fat and water, and allows the muscle to move the skin Deep fascia - infuses with bone, muscle, nerves, and blood vessels to the cellular level Visceral fascia - provides the packing tissue for the organs of the body
  • What Is Myofascial Therapy?
    Myofascial therapy is a manual technique often used in massage. It focuses on pain arising from myofascial tissues (the tough membranes that wrap, support, and connect your muscles). It uses a safe, low-load stretch to release tightness and pain caused by chronic muscle pain that is worse in certain trigger points.
