Graston Technique

Graston Technique by our chiropractor

The Graston Technique is essentially a type of therapy that uses instruments to assist in the mobilization of soft tissues of the body. It is a very popular technique that gives patients a great deal of relief.

The Graston Technique works by breaking down scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are created by trauma to the soft tissue. This can be the result of strained muscles or pulled tendons.

It also reduces restrictions by elongating connective tissue. This effectively changes the structure of the tissue in order to improve function.

Rocktape/Kinesio Taping

rocktape

KT Tape is a revolutionary sports medicine solution for treating and preventing common sports injuries such as ITBS, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, knee pain and more. Ultra-light, elastic, and strong, KT is highly effective at providing pain relief, stability, and support, and faster recovery for injured or sore muscles and joints without sacrificing comfort or freedom of movement.

Kinesio taping has been breaking new grounds in fields of sports performance, pain management, and physical therapy. The KT method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

Our goal is to stabilize the area of injury and to return the athlete back to activity.

Dr. Ashtiani is certified in fascial movement taping levels 1 and 2.

Acoustic Compression Therapy

MyACT Concept with PiezoWave

Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons, and joints. MyACT describes the use of acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT can lead to increased circulation and pain relief-key components in the healing process.

Patient Guided Pain Relief

The source of pain is not always found in the area where the pain seems to be radiating from. This is clinically called referred pain. The distancing of the pain sensation from its source can make treatment more difficult. Diagnosis of referred pain and the recognition of the originating pain triggering points can be accomplished using the PiezoWave. Abnormal musculoskeletal tissue can be “flared” with focused MyACT in order to define the areas that require treatment. This process of defining the origins of pain is guided by the patient through verbal feedback to the healthcare professional providing the treatment.
