Graston and Soft Tissue Techniques
Logan's Soft Tissue Technique begins with a lecture and review of numerous soft tissue approaches that are available to today's Doctors of Chiropractic. After the lecture, the lab portion of the initial class periods focus on practice and application of two major soft tissue methods, Myofascial Release and Positional Release.
The Graston Technique is a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The Graston Technique offers many advantages and benefits.
