Many types of physical therapy treatments either help you heal from recent injuries or work to prevent injuries from happening at all. They often focus on your joints, muscle groups, and connective tissue.
The Graston Treatment is different, in that it focuses on the surface layer of muscle right under your skin. It treats the scar tissue and adhesions that can build up over time, limiting your movement and strength.
The trained experts at outpatient physical therapy NYC use the Graston Technique when they believe it would be effective.
Many New Yorkers are limited in their daily lives by soft tissue injuries. Any sort of trauma to your skin, muscles, tendons or ligaments can cause pain and upset your daily routines. These injuries shouldn’t be confused with fractures, which affect your bones, or injuries to your internal organs. The pain and symptoms you experience with soft tissue injuries differ from those injuries.
GRASTON TECHNIQUE TO MOBILIZE YOUR MUSCLES
The Graston technique is a patented form of physical therapy, in which stainless steel tools are used to perform muscle mobilizations.
The trained professionals who use these tools follow your body’s kinetic chain to uncover and treat the causes of your pain. It’s a proven technique. While the Graston Technique may cause you some discomfort during treatment, it’s not painful and serves to lessen your other pain.
As with any physical therapy treatment and like a firm massage, you likely experience some soreness afterward.
