Graston Technique®

Graston Technique® at Raleigh Specific Chiropractic

Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated. Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Preventing acute injuries from becoming chronic and reversing the outcomes on conditions once thought to be permanent.

Fascia is a sheet or band of fibrous connective tissue enveloping, separating, or binding together muscles, organs, and other soft structures of the body. The fascia, along with the muscles can develop scar tissue, adhesions, and/or trigger points that may be the cause of over-use injuries or pain syndromes.

For the patient:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment

  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery

  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication

  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

For employers and the healthcare industry:

  • Allows patients to remain on the job

  • Reduces the need for splints, braces and job-site modifications

  • Contributes to reduction of labor and healthcare costs, direct and indirect
