Is Graston Therapy The Right Treatment For You?


At Backs on Burnside Chiropractic and Massage, our team of experienced chiropractors use various methods to reduce tension and pain while helping to increase your range of motion and improve your quality of life. The Graston Technique is a manual therapy approach that uses instruments to massage the tissues below the skin. The Graston Technique works by breaking up scar tissue and adhesions that have formed in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This helps to increase blood flow and reduce chronic inflammation. In turn, this can help to reduce pain and improve the range of motion.

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is an evidence-based form of soft tissue mobilization that uses a specially designed stainless steel instrument to detect areas of soft tissue injury. This form of instrument is then used to break up scar tissue and adhesions, which can help reduce pain and improve the range of motion.

The general goals of the Graston Technique are to reduce the patient’s pain and increase function by breaking down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions, which come from some form of trauma to the soft tissue. This therapy reduces restrictions by stretching connective tissue to rearrange the soft tissue’s structure. With the help of the Graston Technique, many of our patients have been able to find relief from chronic pain and achieve their desired level of function.
