GRASTON/ GUA SHA
Graston Technique is an instrumental procedure that helps mobilize soft tissues to break up dead scar tissue, also known as “knots”, that can lead to increased pain and loss of range of motion. Below are some key points in helping our patients:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Gua Sha is a chinese technique of skin scrapping that is also utilized in the office and has similar effects as the Graston Technique. Practitioners believe gua sha releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing, also known as letting the Qi flow.
