Graston® Technique (extremities only)

Graston-Technique--element44Graston® Technique is a non-invasive technique where Dr. Case uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to help identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis/scar tissue. This process will help reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and help to reduce or eliminate the associated pain.

Most patients have significant improvement by the 3rd or 4th treatment.
Same fee if combined with any other treatment.
