How Compassion Massage Incorporates the Graston Technique
If you exercise and perform physical activities frequently, then you will want to consider our Graston Technique services. The Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted form of soft tissue mobilization used by our therapists to address soft tissue injuries. Muscle tightness from repetitive movement, compensatory posture, and scar tissue can lead to painful and/or limited movement. By implementing the Graston Technique, your massage therapist can target the problem area and help return the affected soft tissue to a more normal state, enabling increased circulation and better mobility.
The Best Choice for Treating Shin Splints, Carpal Tunnel, and Achilles Heel
The Graston Technique is best to be used for conditions including shin splints, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Achilles Heel, and many others. Acute injuries respond quickly to this type of therapy whereas some chronic conditions may require a longer recovery period. Despite the amount of downtime your condition may take, we can assure you that the Graston Technique works all the same. Orthopedic conditions such as Golfer’s Elbow, Tennis Elbow, and Plantar Fasciitis, along with several others, can also be treated with this technique. This method of soft tissue mobilization does not have to be painful in order for it to be effective.
