Golfer’s Elbow? Recover Faster with Graston

Capilano Rehab physiotherapy clinic in Edmonton offers Graston® Technique for nagging soft tissue injuries like tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow.  Graston® Technique (GT) provides patients with improved diagnosis and treatment for many challenging musculoskeletal conditions. Used by our Capilano physical therapists, the stainless steel Graston® instruments comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction.

Graston Physiotherapy Breaks Up Scar Tissue

The unique instruments enable Capilano physical therapists to treat soft tissue lesions in a precise manner and with greater specificity. Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body.

Graston Physiotherapy is Part of a Rehab Plan

By incorporating stretching, strengthening and other exercises and modalities in the treatment and rehab process, Capilano physical therapists can help rebuild your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.

Graston Physiotherapy Speeds Recovery

Graston® Technique speeds rehabilitation and recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication and allows patients to continue everyday activities. GT gives you back the control that often is lost when injury strikes.

Graston Physiotherapy is Clinically Proven to Achieve Positive Outcomes

Patients usually receive two treatments per week during a four- to five-week period. Most patients have a positive response by the third to fourth treatment. Historically, the Graston® Technique has had positive outcomes in 75–90 percent of all conditions treated.

Graston Physiotherapy is Effective For Nagging Injuries

Our physical therapists have treated many conditions with Graston, including Achilles Tendinitis (ankle pain), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain), Cervical Sprain/Strain (neck pain), Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow), Medial Epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow), Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain), Rotator Cuff Tendinitis (shoulder pain), Scar Tissue, Shin Splints and Trigger Finger.

If you are suffering from tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow or other chronic pain that has not responded well to conventional approaches, your Edmonton Physical Therapy Clinic, Capilano Rehab Centre, can help. Give us a call at 780-466-1104 today to book your appointment. Heal better and recover faster with Graston.
