Graston Technique

Graston Technique (IASTM) is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to detect and effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as maintain optimal range of motion. This technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments are also used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain to, locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
  • Provides an efficient way to maintain optimal range of motion

Soft tissue adhesions or scar tissue formation that may have developed from surgery, repetitive stress, or faulty bio-mechanics, can be restored to normal healthy tissue with Graston Technique. The uniquely designed instruments have a beveled edge and are used with an emollient to provide a cross-friction myofascial release over the targeted area. This causes a controlled microtrauma to the affected soft tissue, which stimulates a local inflammatory response. The inflammatory cascade initiates re-absorption of excessive fibrotic scar tissue, while facilitating in the remodeling of the affected soft tissues.

    I've seen many chiropractors over the years for various things, but I've never felt like I've had the level of care provided here. My husband and I initially found Dr. Larry when we were looking for someone certified in ART, but now he's our family chiropractor. Thank you for such great care and service!

    5 star review  We have been going to chiropractors for years now with back and neck problems and yet the first day I see dr. Larry I immediately know this is the exact chiropractor I need. He knew exactly what was going on he asked me the right questions and knew exactly the right locations where I was in pain after the first time we met I already felt better than I ever did with any other chiropractor.

    positive review  I highly recommend Dr. Larry! He's knowledgeable and can pinpoint the issue while understanding how the body functions as a whole. I've referred friends to him and they've absolutely loved him, and I'll continue to send him my friends and family. When you're sick of the pain, go see Dr. Larry.
