Top 3 Reasons Why NFL, NBA & MLB Players Love The Graston Technique

Graston

Why is the Graston Technique the leading soft-tissue therapy used by two-thirds of players in the NFL, NBA and MLB teams? Because it works very well and very fast. 
This highly effective form of manual therapy, known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization, is just one of a number of manual therapy approaches that utilizes instruments with a specialized form of massage, while scraping the skin gently to release muscle tension and pain.

When a patient is given manual or instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) therapy, certain nerve fibers are activated. The body's position sense organs, such as mechanoreceptors and proprioceptors, seem to respond to these forms of treatment. These mechanoreceptors send feedback to the brain increasing levels of pleasure, release of anxiety and tension for the muscles and body overall. 
Graston Technique is a trusted process by professional athletes and sports medicine practitioners like Dr. Arash Noor of BodyPro Chiropractic & Sports Medicine.
