Graston Technique

Graston TechniqueFrom Injury to Recovery

The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. During this procedure, Wasserman Chiropractic utilizes a set of stainless steel instruments that are drawn over your skin to reduce underlying scar tissue and fascial restrictions. As we pull our instruments across adhesions and scar tissue, patients report a temporary tightening, followed by a pleasant sense of release.

The hand instruments we use allow a deeper, more sensitive palpation and treatment of restricted tissues. Since the metal instruments do not compress like the fat pads of the fingers, deeper restrictions can be accessed and resolved. In addition, their concave/convex shapes mold to the various contours of your body for greater comfort and effectiveness.

Originally developed for the treatment of athletic injuries, patients report excellent results with both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries:

  • Decreased recovery time
  • Reduces need for medications
  • Resolves longstanding conditions

Since many long-standing spinal problems produce inflammation, muscle changes and fibrotic scar tissue, this approach is helpful in creating significant, long-term changes to soft tissues throughout your body. Repeated visits to Wasserman Chiropractic help resolve these areas of scar tissue so improved muscle tone can be restored.
