Active Release Technique (ART®) and Graston® Technique
Active Release Technique (ART®) and Graston® Technique are both manual therapy techniques that can help improve the function of your muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and other soft tissues in your body.
ART® is a type of soft tissue manipulation that focuses on improving the function of muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. It involves applying specific pressure to the affected area while moving different body parts to help break up scar tissue/adhesions in order to restore normal tissue tone and flexibility. This technique can help reduce pain and improve mobility, especially in individuals who are experiencing overuse injuries.
Graston® Technique is a form of manual therapy known as instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). A practitioner utilizes specialized tools to manipulate the soft tissues to help reduce adhesions found within different tissues and increase blood flow to the affected area. This technique can be particularly effective in treating chronic pain and stiffness caused by scar tissue buildup.
In addition to treating injuries, ART® and Graston® can also help prevent future injuries from occurring. By restoring proper mobility and function to your soft tissues, these techniques can help reduce the likelihood of re-injury and improve overall performance in physical activities.
It is important to note that these techniques should only be performed by trained and professionals. A trained manual therapist will be able to evaluate your condition and develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs.
Overall, ART® and Graston® techniques can help improve the function of your soft tissues, reduce pain, and improve mobility. These techniques can be particularly effective for treating injuries caused by repetitive strain, overuse, or scar tissue buildup. Whether you are an athlete looking to improve your performance or an individual seeking relief from chronic pain, these techniques can help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
