ProActive Chiropractic is proud to announce that they have just been certified to offer the Graston Technique as a treatment option. The Graston Technique is used to provide patients with relief for tissue pain.
The technique is a recent advance in non-invasive treatment to correct issues related to soft tissue pain. One of the common conditions ProActive Chiropractic helps Bay Area athletes with are ankle sprains, the Graston Technique is particularly helpful in the treatment of this injury. In the event of an ankle sprain, the lateral ankle ligaments are affected 80-90 percent of the time, according to a study done in 2012 by the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation.
In an ankle sprain, the tissues around the ankle complex can become damaged and can cause soft tissue fibrosis and chronic inflammation, which result in decreased mobility and pain. The Graston Technique uses stainless steel instruments that are able to mold to the different contours of the body and work to allow the doctor to better penetrate tissues.
The instruments used detect adhesions, scar tissue or restrictions in the affected areas and then work to break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. It has proven effective to restoring function to acute and chronic injuries in pre and postsurgical patients.
“This is another fantastic tool utilized at ProActive Chiropractic to get athletes back to work and back to play faster. Typically patients feel a significant improvement after one session,” said Dr. Andrew Cohen, DC, CCSP and founder of ProActive Chiropractic.
