It’s really not that hard to make a ligament, tendon or muscle hurt.
Overexert on the tennis court. Or spend too much time moving boxes at work. Fortunately, it’s not that hard to alleviate the pain.
One of the techniques CORA PTs are trained to use is Graston.
Graston is instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization, and it works on a mechanical level. What does that mean? Specialized instruments are massaged over the affected area, breaking down unhealthy tissue and alleviating aches and pains from strains, sprains, injuries and overexertion.
This is how we can help increase range of motion, shorten treatment times and get our patients back to work (or on the court) faster—even if the condition is chronic. Because while it’s not that hard to hurt yourself, it’s now easier than ever to get back to life.
