Reduce Recovery Time & Restore Your Range of Motion
Graston therapy is a treatment that requires the use of an instrument to massage and stimulate your soft tissue. Physiotherapists, chiropractors, and other professionals use this treatment to identify areas of the body with limited mobility and to break down some scar tissue.
Through the use of Graston therapy, providers attempt to reduce pain and discomfort, improve your range of motion, and aid your soft tissue in its healing process after an injury. This method is supported by empirical and anecdotal evidence.
On your first visit, you will be met by our friendly support staff who will help you with filling out forms, answer any questions and help with anything else you need. You will then meet with the practitioner to discuss your specific concerns and health history.
Assessment & Recommendation for Care
Your practitioner will discuss your specific needs, present your options, suggest a treatment plan, and discuss the benefits and any risks associated with the recommended treatment. Treatment plans are specific to each patient.
