Graston Instruments used in Chiropractic Care

Graston Instruments

As a Holistic Chiropractor there are various instruments and tools that I use. Some of the tools I utilize are called the Graston Instruments. These tools are used to break up scar tissue and adhesion’s in the soft tissue around the injury; that would be the tendons, ligaments, and joint capsules.

 

Soft tissue injuries

These tools help treat acute and chronic soft tissue injuries through the Graston Technique. After lubricating the skin, I use the stainless steel instruments around the problem area to detect and treat the areas that have soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Mobilizing the soft tissue allows me to effectively break down scar tissue and restrictions in the affected area. It is common to experience minor discomfort during this treatment and some bruising afterwards as part of the healing process. I have been Graston Certified since 2003.
