North Miami Beach Chiropractor

The Graston Technique is a unique method of identifying and treating areas of the body presenting signs of chronic inflammation or soft tissue fibrosis. Using precisely designed, hand-held instruments, chiropractors move these stainless steel instruments over affected areas, searching for adhesions causing pain and muscle ache. Once a Tacoma chiropractor makes contact with an adhesion, they use the instruments to break up and dissolve fascial restrictions and scar tissue caused by soft tissue injuries. In time, the Graston Technique eliminates adhered fibers, restores flexibility and range of motion and transforms inflamed soft tissues into healthy, pain-free, functioning tissues.

Benefits of the Graston Technique for Athletes

Athletes and physically active people regularly endure musculoskeletal pain due to strains, sprains, and tears. Although other chiropractic techniques can reduce pain and promote healing of stressed joints and muscles, the Graston Technique offers additional advantages for athletes such as:

  • Decreasing lengthy treatment times
  • Fostering quicker recovery times
  • Reducing or even eliminating the need to take analgesics for muscle or joint pain
  • Potentially resolves chronic musculoskeletal conditions previously diagnosed as permanent

The Graston Technique provided by your chiropractor is one of the most effective, noninvasive therapies for a range of motion and rehabilitation maintenance. In addition to dissolving scar tissue and other types of painful tissue adhesions, the Graston Technique is also useful for treating conditions suffered by non-athletes. Clinical applications of GT include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendonitis
  • Neck pain (cervical strain/sprain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back pain
  • Knee pain (patellofemoral disorders)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Shin splints
  • Cesarean and post-mastectomy scarring
