When a person is injured, the body creates a fibrous scar to protect the injury. Adhesion scars can be caused by microtraumas such as repetitive motion injuries such as swimming, tennis or golf swings, or by macro trauma such as muscle tears or blunt trauma from falls or contact sports such as football and lacrosse.
Scar tissue limits freedom of movement and, in many cases, causes pain that prevents the patient from functioning as before the injury. You can consult for Graston therapy in Pickering.

Scarring explains why many wounds feel "different" even after weeks or months of visible healing.
A new soft tissue therapy called Graston Technique Cross-Rubbing Massage Therapy and its advanced soft tissue treatment technology is attracting world-renowned attention.
The Graston technique tool is used to enhance the physician's ability to identify scars, adhesions, and soft tissue boundaries in the affected area.
Qualified chiropractors and therapists use stainless steel tools to comb and "capture" fibrous tissue, immediately identifying restricted areas. Once the tissue is identified, it is used to break down the fibrous tissue into scars so that it can be absorbed by the body.
Patients usually receive 2-3 treatments per week for 4-5 weeks. However, most patients respond positively to treatment for 3 or 4 weeks.
The Graston technique is equally effective in relieving pain and restoring function in acute and chronic injuries, and in assisting postoperative recovery. Graston has had excellent results in a variety of conditions including tennis elbow and sprains/strains in plantar fasciitis, as well as neck and back pain.
