(1) Clearly, some of the most physically active and frequently injured people on the planet must be feeling the relief of this healing technique!
Graston Technique® is used to help treat all kinds of bodily issues from annoying neck pain to the widespread muscle pain of fibromyalgia. So how does this technique help patients to become free of torturous pain and injury? Read on to find out.
What Is the Graston Technique?
Graston Technique® is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables practitioners to improve scar tissue, fascial restrictions and range of motion. The theory behind this very interesting technique is that by using a tool to introduce microtrauma into an area of excessive scarring and/or soft tissue fibrosis an inflammatory response will occur that will encourage the healing process. The use of tools helps to get to the root of the problem, but it’s also intended to reduce stress on the therapist’s hands.
Graston Technique® allows a practitioner to get deep into the problematic tissue yet be sensitive to a patient’s level of pain tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with adhesions, they help to break up scar tissue and restrictions of the fascia. In time, this process can reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. The aim and ideal outcome of Graston Technique® is to help transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue once again.
Why does Graston Technique® aim to reduce scar tissue? Scar tissue is thick, dense tissue that appears after injury or trauma. It can limit your range of motion, cause pain and lead to dysfunctional movement. Graston Technique® aims to break up this scar tissue to interrupt and break the cycle of pain and dysfunction.
Graston Technique® is never used completely on its own. The full treatment includes brief warm-up exercises, Graston Technique® treatment, followed by stretching and strengthening activities. Ice can also be a part of the follow-up portion of treatment if subacute inflammation (inflammation that lasts longer than acute inflammation but is not chronic) is present.
Who is using this healing physical therapy? Graston Technique® is used by more than 24,500 clinicians worldwide in 3,042 outpatient facilities and is included in the curriculum at more than 45 respected universities and colleges. Graston Technique® is also utilized by over 431 professional and amateur sports organizations and on-site at 86 major corporations. (3)
It depends upon the specific patient, but Graston Technique® typically involves one to two treatments per week during the span of four to five weeks. Most patients have a positive response by the third or fourth treatment session. For more chronic conditions, the average number of Graston Technique® sessions per episode of care averages between six to 12 treatments.
