Soft Tissue Injuries & The Graston Technique
If you are struggling with soft tissue injuries, the Graston Technique can offer an effective treatment to deal with scar tissue in muscles, tendons, or ligaments.
Dr. Jay Burness, founder of Northoak Chiropractic, is the most experienced Graston Technique practitioner in the country, having actively practiced the technique since first bringing it to Canada in 2003. Over the years, people from all walks of life have benefited from this technique, including elite athletes, weekend warriors, and more.
What is the Graston Technique?
The Graston Technique is a state-of-the-art method used to identify and treat soft tissue injuries. It has proven effective in the treatment of approximately 100 different conditions including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- IT band syndrome
- Lower back pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Rotator cuff injuries
- And many others
The technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that effectively breaks down scar tissue in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Six specially-designed stainless steel instruments are used to precisely detect and effectively treat areas of soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
How Does Graston Technique Therapy Work?
A typical course of treatment for soft tissue injuries involves eight sessions over a period of four to eight weeks. Specific rehabilitative exercises are also used in the process. Most patients should expect to notice significant improvement as early as the fourth treatment.
