Dr. Jeffrey Griffin, a chiropractor and owner of Center for Natural Healing, in Doylestown, recently attended a certification program at Widener University School of Physical Therapy for advanced training in the Graston Technique.
Graston Technique is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and restrictions
in the soft tissue, resulting in improved patient outcomes. The 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.
Originally developed by athletes, Graston Technique is an interdisciplinary
treatment used by more than 21,000 clinicians worldwide—including physical
and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors and athletic trainers.
