ericPolson1Muscle and tendon strains are a common problem whether you are active at work, at home, in sports, dance, or playing a musical instrument. Overuse can cause injury to the connective tissue, making it fibrotic which then leads to pain and weakness. Graston Technique is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables physical therapists to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, helping patients maintain optimal range of motion.

Graston Technique is clinically proven to achieve excellent outcomes for acute and chronic conditions such as Achilles Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, Adhesive Capsulitis, IT Band Syndrome, Lumbar Strain, and Plantar Fasciitis.

Graston Technique works well alongside other techniques, such as therapeutic exercises that are used to correct muscle imbalances. There are numerous benefits to be gained from influential therapy combinations including the Graston Technique, keeping active people performing at their highest level.
