Graston Technique® is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as maintain optimal range of motion.
At Allied Health and Chiropractic, we advocate and practice the use of this technique to facilitate healing because the treatment:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
- Provides an efficient way to maintain optimal range of motion
"Since being trained/certified in GT, I have found many patients respond positively to Graston application paired with therapeutic exercises," states Maggie Mandic, DPT, Allied Health and Chiropractic's physical therapist. "Patients tend to report quicker return to function and overall symptomatic improvements," she continues.
Maggie has treated a variety of pathologies ranging from post-operative stiffness and scarring to chronic diagnoses and has found success with improved active range of motion with patients suffering from adhesive restrictions in the shoulder, knee, and ankle.
