CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – The Graston Technique is the use of several specialized instruments to locate and remove scar tissue and adhesions from soft tissue throughout the body.
Scar tissue can form in the body for many reasons. The most obvious is surgery. However, the body also forms scar tissue from repeated “micro-trauma,” which can be anything that stresses the soft tissue of the body, from sports such as running or lifting to everyday activities like carrying your children. When your body repairs these micro-traumas, it uses small amounts of scar tissue to facilitate the repair. When these activities are repeated over a period of time, the scar tissue accumulates and can total as much as if someone sustained a major trauma.
