An Advanced Method to Decrease Pain and Improve Function

Wondering how the Graston Technique in Gilbert AZ can help you? This remarkable procedure allows us to detect and treat areas of “scar tissue” or adhesions in muscles, tendons, and ligaments that can reduce the range of motion and cause pain.

In the healing process, our body attempts to repair those areas by creating scar tissue, much like the scar that forms on the skin when you have scraped or banged your knee.


Dysfunction in Gilbert AZ

In time, we can have a build-up of this fibrous scar tissue, particularly in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that get a lot of use. This can lead to pain and dysfunction because this replacement tissue lacks the strength and flexibility of healthy tissue (in some areas it may even mat down and entrap a nerve).

GT Instruments

The Graston Technique® allows us to better detect and treat these areas because it uses a stainless steel instrument that glides along a patient’s muscles, tendons or ligaments, with the right amount of pressure to detect just where the scar tissue or restrictions are located.

When these knots or bands of scar tissue are encountered, both the clinician and the patient sense a restriction, almost like a speed bump or granular feeling. The instrument can then be used to “break up” this restriction or adhesion. Stretching exercises are used to promote the re-alignment of the fibers into the normal pattern of healthy tissue.


Benefits

The benefit of the Graston Technique is not only in the detection of restrictions and adhesions but also in the amount of improvement that takes place in a short amount of time.

The body parts are connected in what is referred to as the kinetic chain. The instruments allow the clinician to follow that chain, effectively uncovering the cause of the problem, then treating the cause and the area of the pain or restriction.

Graston Technique
The unaided hand is hard-pressed to detect and break up as much scar tissue or follow the kinetic chain, as effectively or efficiently as the stainless steel instruments can.

Patients usually receive two treatments per week for four to five weeks. Most patients have a positive response within two to three treatments.

GT decreases the overall time of treatment, fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication, and resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent.
