Graston Technique FAQs

If you're looking for a chiropractor in the Durham area who offers the Graston Technique, you've come to the right place. Peterson Chiropractic can answer your questions and provide you with the help and support you need to feel better, faster. Here's what you need to know about this particular option.

What Is the Graston Technique?

The Graston Technique is a soft-tissue mobilization therapy that's assisted by instruments. It helps your chiropractor address adhesions in the soft tissue and restrictions in the fascia. As an effective means of manual therapy, the Graston Technique can be used to treat a number of issues and conditions to help restore range of motion and lessen pain.

Is Scar Tissue an Issue?

Scar tissue is a problem because it restricts the ability to move freely. As it builds up it causes a reduced range of motion and can also create pain and discomfort. By treating it effectively there is a better chance to move more comfortably and enjoy more activities without struggle. The Graston Technique helps to reduce this tissue.

Will Treatment Affect Everyday Activities?

The Graston Technique helps to make everyday activities easier. After treatment, our chiropractor will advise you about returning to activities. In most cases, it's possible to do everything you otherwise would, as long as you're no longer dealing with pain and discomfort.

What Kinds of Results Should I Expect?

In 75 to 90 percent of cases where the Graston Technique is used you can expect to see significant improvement. Most people report less pain and discomfort, along with an increased ability to move more freely and comfortably. Our chiropractor may also recommend other treatments in combination with this technique to provide you with maximum benefit.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
