by | Jun 10, 2020 | The Rubin Chiropractic Health Center Blog

At Rubin Health Center, we keep up with the latest, most innovative techniques and incorporate them into our physical therapy practice. The Graston Technique is an innovative new practice that uses small instruments to identify tissue damage, and then use the tool to relieve pain and repair the damage. It is most often used to treat soft tissue injuries and to relieve pain associated with scar tissue buildup. Here are some of the benefits you might enjoy in addition to relieving these symptoms.

Pain Relief

The Graston technique relieves pain in different ways depending on the goal of treatment. If you have excess scar tissue buildup, pain will be relieved significantly as the scar tissue breaks loose and allows the connecting tissue to move freely. When you get treatment for soft tissue damage, you will get pain relief as the tissues are repaired. In addition, any treatment of the Graston Technique removes toxins from the injury, which promotes healing.

Boost Natural Healing

This innovative technique gently increases blood flow, improving circulation significantly. This allows oxygen and nutrients to move into the injured area more easily and in more concentrated amounts. This  strengthens the muscles and tissues, which can also improve range of motion or mobility.

Fast, Proven Results

Researchers and clinical trials have worked to understand and test the Graston Technique for almost 30 years, and they have found definitive evidence that this method can be used as a stand alone treatment for chronic soft tissue conditions. This treatment significantly reduces recovery time.
