The Graston Technique® for Soft Tissue Mobilization
Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted therapy for soft tissue mobilization that is highly effective in removing restrictive scar tissue and adhesions from the muscles, tendons and ligaments anywhere on the body. Particularly effective for sports injuries, Graston Technique® provides optimum results when used as part of a physical rehabilitation regime. When soft tissue restrictions are removed, healing is improved and normal function is restored.
The patented stainless steel instruments used to perform Graston Technique® work to mobilize tissue and assist the body in naturally and safely expelling tissue restrictions that cause discomfort, irritation, pain, and do not allow for injuries to heal completely.
Dr. Shoshany and his team are certified Graston Technique® providers in NYC and have successfully treated patients who presented cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, post-traumatic injuries, sports injuries, muscle sprains, muscular pain, back pain, joint pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, leg pain, and more.
The advanced soft tissue treatment protocols that make up the Graston Technique® locate and eliminate fibrous scar tissue that develops and accumulates after an injury or trauma to the tissue. Inflammation and tissue regeneration are normal parts of the healing process, however it can create painful and restrictive scar tissue that must be treated for optimum healing to take place. Since scar tissue does not have the same mobility as healthy tissue, it can cause stiffness, discomfort, pain, and restricted movement.
