Sports Therapy from Parker Performance
Graston is a soft tissue technique that is proven to get results with acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. It is so effective that many professional and collegiate teams use the Graston technique. The treatment includes the application of a smooth lotion over the treatment area and running a metal tool over the treatment area to help breakdown scar tissue. This technique helps promote the proper healing of scar tissues and adhesions in the affected area. Normal patients will gather micro-scars and adhesions throughout their lives and not recognize it, leaving them untreated.
Pettibon is a technique that focuses on helping restore proper spinal curves while also treating muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Pettibon is effective because it helps relieve the pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. Relieving pressure on the spinal cord and nerves also helps restore proper back posture. Pettibon is utilized with every patient’s treatment, not just patients with sports injuries.
