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.
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.
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.
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:
