Soft tissue injuries (STI) are when trauma or overuse occurs to muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Most soft tissue injuries occur during sports and exercise, but simple everyday activities can sometimes cause an injury. Tendinitis and bursitis are common soft-tissue overuse injuries. Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and annoying. At Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center, we offer the Graston Technique to help relieve the symptoms that might accompany your injury.
The Graston Technique® (GT) therapy effectively treats all soft tissue conditions, whether chronic, acute, or post-surgical. GT helps with acute and chronic injuries to fascia, tendons, muscle, and scar tissue of all kinds. It is used by several NFL, NBA, NHL, and Olympic athletes regularly. Graston Technique® therapy has resolved issues for patients that caused them to live with pain for years, sometimes decades. Say goodbye to costly anti-inflammatory and pain medications.
Benefits Of Graston Technique®
Here is a list of some of the benefits patients experience undergoing Graston Technique®:
- Reduced scar tissue
- Reduced pain and soreness
- Reduced inflammation
- Accelerated recovery time
- Increased range of motion
How Graston Technique® Works
GT uses specially designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of movement and function. The instruments are also used diagnostically to assess the kinetic chain efficiently using the principles of regional interdependence.
The technique and instruments used during the treatment process enable the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation, allowing for faster rehabilitation and greater success when the goal is restoring range of motion, eliminating pain, and bringing back normal function.
So, get started relieving your injury-related pain and accelerating your recovery by scheduling a consultation at Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center in Cary for Graston Technique® Therapy.
