GRASTON TECHNIQUE

A modification of traditional hands-on soft tissue mobilization that uses specifically designed instruments. The Graston Technique allows the therapist to introduce a controlled amount of microtrauma into an area of excessive scar and/ or soft tissue fibrosis, hoping that this will invoke an inflammatory response that will augment the healing process. It is also intended to reduce the stress on the therapist's hands.

KINESIO TAPING METHOD

Kinesio tape is made of elastic fibers that are latex free. It has a wave-like pattern that allows the tape to breathe. Japanese chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase introduced the Kinesio Taping Method in 1979, after noticing it was extremely helpful in the treatment of certain ailments. When properly applied, it can be used to treat chronic pain due a variety of sources. This rehabilitative taping method is designed to provide support to joints and muscles, allow for movement and facilitate the body’s natural healing process. It’s safe for both the young and old and successful taping technique for neurological, orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions. In addition to relieving pain, it helps rehabilitate the injured area as well. The Kinesio Taping method targets the body’s receptors and enhances draining of the lymphatic system.

Kinesio tape is highly versatile and can be applied in hundreds of ways to reduce pain, reduce swelling and promote good circulation and healing. It has many specialized shapes, such as “I” and “X.” Clinical assessment dictates its application. In order to garner the benefits of Kinesio tape, a full patient assessment is necessary. All around, Kinesio tape has been proven to have positive effects on joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and skin. It can also be used as an adjunct to other treatments, such as physical therapy, massage and chiropractic. Kinesio tape is extremely strong and can be applied with different degrees of tension. Many therapists and chiropractors will use different tension strengths and taping techniques to allow the muscles and ligaments to have range of motion. The tape basically stabilizes an area. For example, it prevents further injury to the knee.
