The Graston Technique®

"Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated."
The Graston Technique® is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables a chiropractor to break down scar tissue or myofascial adhesions known as a triggerpoint.  Triggerpoints can cause neck pain, back pain, arm pain & sciatica for which a Chiropractor can be helpful.  This is an effective alternative to physical therapy.
