health benefits of graston
Graston Technique, a form of manual therapy, utilizes specialized stainless steel instruments to mobilize soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments, Graston can effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. This therapy is especially beneficial for individuals recovering from soft tissue injuries, such as strains or sprains, as it can reduce pain, improve range of motion, and accelerate the healing process. It’s also known to address chronic conditions like plantar fasciitis or tennis elbow. Moreover, Graston can enhance athletic performance by optimizing tissue health and function, making it a valuable tool for athletes and those seeking to regain pain-free mobility. When administered by one of our physical therapists, Graston can be an integral part of a comprehensive healthcare plan, promoting overall well-being and physical comfort.
The frequency and treatment for the Graston Technique depend on the nature and severity of the soft tissue issue being addressed. In many cases, patients undergo 1-2 sessions per week for several weeks to address chronic conditions or injuries. The duration of treatment can vary, with some patients experiencing relief in just a few sessions, while others may require a more extended treatment plan. A physical therapist will assess your condition and determine the most appropriate frequency and duration for Graston Technique.
