Using patented tools and techniques, we employ the Graston Technique to treat your soft tissue conditions so that you can heal faster and more thoroughly, and get back to living the life you love.

The Problem With Scar Tissue

When a person is injured, either from a trauma, repetitive stress or some other cause, it is common for the soft tissues to form scar tissue as a result. From minor sprains to major injuries, if you get hurt there is a good chance your body will create scar tissue and fascial restrictions in an effort to heal itself. Unfortunately, that scar tissue can cause real problems long after the initial injury has healed.

Scar tissue and fascial restrictions can stick around for years – even decades. It is quite possible that the pain you are feeling right now is due to scar tissue. Instead of your muscles and connective tissues moving smoothly and freely as they are designed to do, the scar tissue can inhibit soft tissue and lead to discomfort that may never go away unless the scar tissue is broken down. Fortunately, the Graston Technique offers us a proven way to identify problem areas and treat them.

How the Graston Technique Works

The Graston Technique uses a range of tools specifically designed to locate problem areas in the soft tissue and to access those areas with the necessary pressure to create change. The tools are shaped in ways that allow access to all parts of the body in the most comfortable way possible, while also being strong enough to apply the necessary pressure to break up the scar tissue and adhesions that are causing pain, discomfort and inflammation.

The Graston Technique does not have to be painful to be effective. When we use a specific tool for the problem area, we only apply as much pressure as necessary to achieve the desired outcome. While treatment can sometimes be uncomfortable, the relief that comes after makes the discomfort well worthwhile.
