Muscles And Tendons Can Harbor Scar Tissue
Muscles and Tendons are almost always involved with pain. Most chiropractors use some form of soft tissue technique to address scar tissue pain but few are abreast of the innovative Graston Technique.
The Graston Technique is used by chiropractors, physical therapists and athletic trainers. It is a form of soft-tissue manipulation that uses stainless steel instruments specifically designed to address scar tissue within the muscle
Non-invasive Graston instruments are used on the surface of the skin to break up scar tissue allowing muscles to function their best. Treatment takes about 5 minutes and can significantly improve your body’s ability to avoid pain and increase function.
When Muscles Move, They Produce Friction
Friction is what causes your body to get warm when you exercise. With pain conditions like lower back pain, muscles develop scar tissue. Scar tissue causes an unnecessary amount of friction resulting in inflammation and pain.
The Graston technique reduces scar tissue enabling pain-free muscle function. It can be used on virtually any area of the body but is best for neck pain, shoulder/arm conditions, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, shin splints and more.
