Graston Technique is an advanced therapeutic method for diagnosing and treating disorders of the muscles and related connective tissue. The method employs one of six stainless steel instruments of particular shape and size, which are used by practitioners to evaluate and treat injured or irritated tissues in patients’ bodies. Graston is especially well suited in detecting and resolving adhesions, restrictions, scar tissue or irritation in the muscles and tendons and connective tissue in all locations of the body. The intrument used is choosen based on the body part, tissue mass and and the particular disorder or complaint. The Graston method has been successfully employed in treating conditions such as carpal tunnel, rotator cuff injuries, knee disorders (especially collateral ligament injuries), plantar fascitis, TMJ disorders, intercostal muscle sprains/strains, TFL disorders, lateral epicondylitis and many more common musculoskeletal conditions.
This Richmond based Steveston Chiropractic office has been using this technique successfully for many years and the technique is appropriate across the age spectrum from children to senior citizens. Dr. Peters has advanced standing in this technique and finds it especially useful on his athletic patients.
