The Graston Technique Defined

In our Roanoke clinic this non-invasive technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to help the clinician identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

GT allows our chiropractor to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to patient pain and tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions, they help break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. It will help transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.

Concept Behind the Graston Technique®

After an injury, through repetitive movement, or from poor posture scar tissue accumulates around the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The scar tissue receives less blood than healthy tissues get and in many cases, this abnormal tissue causes pain. By breaking up and stretching the scar tissue, the area receives better blood flow, the tissue is able to heal, and patients can regain their lost movement.

How Our Roanoke Chiropractor Conducts the Treatment 

First, our chiropractor will provide proper alignment of supporting structures around the area he is going to treat. Our skilled chiropractor will then use the stainless steel instruments to comb over and "catch" on the fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies the areas of restriction. Once the tissue has been identified, the instruments are then used to address and treat the abnormal tissue. During treatment the patient may feel a “gritty” sensation as the tool moves over the area. After the treatment, our chiropractor then utilizes stretching and cold therapy to reduce soreness.
