Physical Therapy For Scar Tissue
The Graston Technique is an instrument assisted soft-tissue technique that is used to reduce scar tissue and muscle adhesions often found throughout numerous areas of the body. Similar to a deep tissue or sports massage, the Graston tool helps to release both the superficial and intermediate fascial and muscular layers. Chiropractic Graston Technique is clinically proven to achieve faster and better outcomes for acute and chronic conditions and injuries such as Achilles Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, Adhesive Capsulitis, IT Band Syndrome, Lumbar Strain and Plantar Fasciitis.
What to expect...
Your Boulder Sports Chiropractic provider will begin by assessing the area where the scar tissue is located. An emollient oil is used on the skin prior to physical therapy to help prevent increased friction over the skin surface. The Graston tool is then used to massage the surface of the skin for a short period of time to improve tissue function. Often there is some reddening of the skin and increased warmth to the treatment area, which typically dissipates shortly after the treatment.
