Effectively Treating Acute and Chronic Injuries
The Graston Technique®, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians — including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors and athletic trainers — and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.
Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
How Low Level Laser Therapy WorksThe laser is applied directly to the target area and the tissues absorb the light which converts the light into chemical energy to promote healing. LLLT is different from other types of lasers such as those used for surgery to cut, destroy or coagulate tissues. The low level of light is not enough to heat your body’s tissue.
