The Graston Technique

Reimer Wellness Center Features Graston Therapy

Chiropractic care is a practice that should be done by a trained doctor's hands.  In some cases, a chiropractor will also use the benefits of specially designed tools to further benefit our patients.  Graston therapy is an example of chiropractic care that uses a tool called a Graston device. In Los Altos, CA Reimer Wellness Center’s Dr. Mary Reimer and expert staff can feature this treatment.


What is Graston Therapy and How Does It Work?

Graston Therapy is a technique of manual therapy called soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. It is a highly effective method of gentle manipulation involving movement and scraping soft tissue.  The goal of Graston therapy is to help our chiropractor identify soft tissue scarring and restore freer movement by breaking up damaged tissue.   

Graston Therapy has only come into general practice a few years ago, but it has already gained acceptance by a wide range of health care professionals. In the Los Altos area, however, Dr. Reimer is one of the few who are specifically trained in the use of the Graston therapy tool.

Chiropractic Goals

For years, scar tissue has been known to cause serious problems among people who have it, from homemakers to athletes. The result of these problems includes difficulty and pain in movement and other issues. Despite knowing that these scars are there, there haven't been many ways to break up scar tissue and restore pain-free movement until the introduction of Graston therapy.

At first, there were proven benefits of using Graston therapy to improve movement since the scar tissue was being broken up. Thie therapy has been used to restore the function of neurologic damage by stimulating these nerve fibers.
