Graston Soft Tissue Therapy

How Does Graston Soft Tissue Therapy Work?

Graston Soft Tissue Therapy is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that detects and treats fascial restrictions, as well as muscle and tendon restrictions. Using stainless steel instruments, the trained doctor will apply a cross-friction massage to an injured area, which reintroduces small amounts of trauma to the affected area. As this trauma is reintroduced, increased blood flow begins to enter the area being treated and, in turn, stimulates the healing process of the surrounding muscles and tendons of the affected area. Graston Soft Tissue Therapy can be beneficial in treating conditions such as:

  • Ankle Pain (Achilles Tendinosis/itis)
  • Wrist Pain (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
  • Neck Pain (Cervical Sprain/Strain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hamstring Injuries
  • Hip Pain
  • IT Band (Iliotibial Band)
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylosis/itis)
  • Back Pain (Lumbar Sprain/Strain)
  • Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylosis/itis)
  • Knee Pain (Patellofemoral Disorders)
  • Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
  • Shoulder Pain (Rotator Cuff Tendinosis/itis)
  • Scar Tissue
  • Trigger Finger
  • Women’s Health (Post-Mastectomy and Caesarean Scarring)

How Long is a Graston Soft Tissue Therapy Session?

A Graston Soft Tissue Therapy Session can lase between 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the affected area. Typically, sessions are delivered once a week for 4 to 5 weeks. In order to determine the effectiveness of Graston Soft Tissue Therapy, as well as to receive the maximum benefit from your treatments it is advised to strictly adhere to your recommended course of care.  In addition, for accelerated healing, Graston Soft Tissue Therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies used in the office, particularly Cold Laser Therapy, as well as with your regular chiropractic adjustments.
