At Brentwood Spine and Sport, we’re always trying to find new ways to help get our patients pain-free faster so they can get back to doing whatever activity they enjoy as soon as possible. Several years ago, I added a new “tool” to my chiropractic-toolbox called Graston Technique. Graston is a patented treatment used by over 9,000 clinicians worldwide, including Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, and Athletic Trainers. The technique, initially developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.
Graston Technique is an innovative instrument that assists with soft tissue mobilization enabling the clinician to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The specifically designed stainless steel instruments help the clinician specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis and chronic inflammation.
In other words, Graston Technique:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster recovery/rehabilitation
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Graston Technique has been used by more than 160 major professional and amateur sports organizations. In the past 8 years, Graston has become part of the curriculum at 38 respected universities and colleges.
Graston was also spotlighted on ABC news in San Francisco highlighting it’s effectiveness in relieving chronic pain. Graston was also touted in the April, 2010 issue of Men’s Journal as being part of their complete guide to treating back pain.
Combining Graston Technique with ART and Chiropractic helps Dr. Ben Kleinbrodt help you get out of pain and back to training as quick as possible.
