Graston Technique

Graston Technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and treat areas exhibiting scar tissue or chronic inflammation. Dr. Renze uses these instruments with varying shapes to comb over and "catch" on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. Once the tissue has been identified, Dr. Brett Renze uses these instruments to break up scar tissue so the body can absorb it.

This Technique reduces pain and increases range of motion. It also:

  • Improves diagnostic treatment -Increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably better outcomes.
  • Speeds rehabilitation and recovery.
  • Reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication.
