Graston Technique:

Effective Injury Treatment

For patients injured in a car accident, it is vital to get the right treatment and therapy in order to recover. We use a full range of treatments to reduce pain, increase mobility, build strength, and improve our patients’ quality of life.

One popular treatment option is Graston Technique, and Dr. Entwistle uses it for one very simple reason — it is tremendously effective. Graston treatment, an innovative, patented form of therapy, is focused on instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization.

How Graston Technique Works

Graston therapy utilizes stainless steel instruments, applied with gentle pressure to affected body parts to specifically detect and effectively treat areas of soft tissue irritation or injury. It is especially effective at dealing with soft tissue fibrosis and inflammation.

Dr. Entwistle applies gliding instruments over patients’ skin, detecting irregularities and injured muscles by touch and texture. These issues could be caused by fibrosis, scar tissue, or other dysfunctional soft tissue issues; once identified, they can be treated.

About Central Florida’s Graston Technique Instruments

The instruments Dr. Entwistle uses are very precise, meaning soft tissue lesions can be effectively and efficiently treated. This results in more focused therapy, less pain, and an effective recovery for patients. Using these instruments is often more effective as they provide greater, more consistent pressure.

Factors That Can Affect Recovery Time

Depending on the factors that caused patient injury, Graston Technique can provide effective relief. Injuries of a more chronic nature can take longer to treat.

The following areas can impact on how long recovery takes:

  • How recently the injury occurred.
  • The severity of the injury.
  • Whether there is underlying damage to the bone or ligaments.
  • Patient age and overall health.
  • Any underlying conditions.

Dr. Entwistle takes all these factors into account and creates a personalized treatment plan for each patient.

How to Improve Chances of Rapid Recovery

Patients can enhance their recovery time by:

  • Following treatment recommendations provided by Dr. Entwistle.
  • Following the recommended home care plan.

We want to help every patient recover effectively. Dr. Entwistle has over 25 years of experience in helping patients recover.
