Even though our Chiropractors are certified in Graston, we currently do not provide this service for our clients.
Graston is a new patented technique used to break down adhesions and scar tissue from past injuries. The theory behind graston is this: once you endure an injury it heals from the outside in, most often leaving the middle of the injury as a scar. The size of the residual scar tissue depends on the severity of the injury. When you get a paper cut, your body has the capacity to heal itself with no scar. If you step on a nail and it goes through your foot, you will most likely end up with a scar. Injuries can happen to your skin leaving a visible scar, and they can also happen underneath the skin. These scars aren’t visible but they do exist and they are weaker than uninjured tissue.
Scar tissue is 20% weaker than healthy tissue, and is a source of re-injury. It is very important for young active individuals to seek chiropractic care after an injury to prevent excessive scar tissue.
