Graston Technique Clinic
East Toronto, Riverdale, Danforth
Graston is a manual therapy technique that is used by our Chiropractor and Physiotherapists as part of their manual treatments.
With the Graston technique, specialized instruments are used with a specialized form of massage, scraping the skin gently.
The general goals of the therapy are to reduce the patient's pain and increase function through a combination of:
Breaking down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft tissue (e.g., a strained muscle or a pulled ligament, tendon, or fascia).
Reducing restrictions by stretching connective tissue in an attempt to rearrange the structure of the soft tissue being treated (e.g., muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments).
