The Benefits of the Graston Technique

Written By Texas Spine & Sports Rehab Clinic on August 2, 2021

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is a unique chiropractic method of promoting muscle relaxation, breaking down scar tissue, and helping the body reduce inflammation. Graston’s signature feature is its six stainless steel instruments that can only be acquired after completing training for this technique. 

At Texas Spine & Sports Rehab Clinic in League City, we utilize graston because it’s great for sports injuries, getting rid of trigger points, and treating chronic pain.

Why the Graston Technique

The graston technique is an evidence-based technique that locates scar tissue and, using the right tool on the right location, breaks up scar tissue. We can perform precision treatment thanks to the specially designed tools sold ONLY to doctors licensed in gratson.

Graston works due to its ability to help the body get out pain and break up scar tissue. Scar tissue causes tightness and often restricts blood flow. The tools trigger an inflammatory response that tells your body to pay attention to and heal the treated area.

This technique is commonly utilized to treat various forms of joint pain, including tougher places like the wrist and heel, and even trigger finger. It can also help with hamstring injuries, back pain, and more.

Patients who receive the Graston technique more often than not feel improvement by the fourth session. And within one to two weeks, depending on the severity of your condition, patients experience pain relief and restored range of motion, feeling the full benefit within 10 sessions.
