Graston Technique

Graston is a manual instrument assisted soft-tissue mobilization technique which applies various tools that enable our chiropractors to efficiently locate and treat our patients. Graston is utilized as a successive therapy to break up fibrosis in the tissue and fascial restrictions, to reduce chronic inflammation, and to accelerate recovery time. As scar tissue can lead to restricted range of motion, this technique can break the cycle of pain and dysfunctional movement. Graston is appreciated by athletes and those looking to resolve issues that have caused pain. This is a different manual therapy approach when combined with other appropriate treatment methods and it can assist in leading to the restoration of healthier movement and function. We find it important that we provide Graston treatment in Spokane so you are able to continue working or training for your favorite sport.
