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.
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
