GRASTON TECHNIQUE FOR SPRAIN OR STRAIN

Many types of physical therapy treatments either help you heal from recent injuries or work to prevent injuries from happening at all. They often focus on your joints, muscle groups, and connective tissue.

The Graston Treatment is different, in that it focuses on the surface layer of muscle right under your skin. It treats the scar tissue and adhesions that can build up over time, limiting your movement and strength.

The trained experts at outpatient physical therapy NYC use the Graston Technique when they believe it would be effective.

Many New Yorkers are limited in their daily lives by soft tissue injuries. Any sort of trauma to your skin, muscles, tendons or ligaments can cause pain and upset your daily routines. These injuries shouldn’t be confused with fractures, which affect your bones, or injuries to your internal organs. The pain and symptoms you experience with soft tissue injuries differ from those injuries.

 

GRASTON TECHNIQUE TO MOBILIZE YOUR MUSCLES

The Graston technique is a patented form of physical therapy, in which stainless steel tools are used to perform muscle mobilizations.

The trained professionals who use these tools follow your body’s kinetic chain to uncover and treat the causes of your pain. It’s a proven technique. While the Graston Technique may cause you some discomfort during treatment, it’s not painful and serves to lessen your other pain.

As with any physical therapy treatment and like a firm massage, you likely experience some soreness afterward.

Injuries often arise from acute trauma, which occurs when an external force hits your body. But you can also sustain an injury from chronic overuse. Acute trauma is always a sudden injury, while overuse ones develop slowly, over time. The most common types of soft tissue injuries are avulsions, contusions and lacerations. All are unpleasant.

Symptoms of overuse soft tissue injuries include:

  • Bruising
  • Impinged range of motion
  • Shoulder pain
  • Shin splints
  • Poor body mechanics and posture
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Dull or throbbing pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Popping or snapping sounds from the affected area
  • Swelling

VESTIBULAR PHYSICAL THERAPISTS

Vertigo can be a game-changer, as you can’t do anything if you’re in the throes of dizziness. But you don’t need to suffer and you don’t need expensive treatments from your doctor.

Your local Brooklyn physical therapy specialist has a treatment program to cure or at least control your vertigo, depending on how severe it is. Contact TRI Physical Therapy to schedule your first session to get back to the life you want.

Vestibular therapy is a physical therapy exercise-based rehabilitation plan with the purpose of improving balance and limiting the problems that happen because of dizziness. Dizziness has a variety of causes, including:

  • Excess fluid trapped in your head from a cold
  • An inner ear disorder
  • A medicinal side effect
  • A neck dysfunction
  • Something potentially life-threatening, like a medical condition affecting your brain or heart

Usually, the onset of dizziness or vertigo disappears after a few weeks, at the most. If your dizziness symptoms remain past this point, you need to be examined. Get to New York rehabilitation clinic for a diagnosis and treatment. You may require vestibular rehabilitation therapy, also known as vestibular training.

CAUSES OF DIZZINESS AND VERTIGO

You may benefit from vestibular rehabilitation therapy if you’ve been diagnosed with a condition such as vertigo.

But the causes of vertigo aren’t always well-defined. Some of the more common causes include:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). The most common cause of vertigo, this condition happens because of debris that’s collected inside a part of your inner ear, throwing off your balance. It’s aggravated by rapid head movements.
  • An infection. An inner ear infection can disrupt your balance. A sinus infection can travel to your ear and throw off your balance.
  • Meniere’s syndrome. This is a disorder of the inner ear that can cause issues of vertigo and hearing loss. Normally, the syndrome only affects one ear. Symptoms of this disease include:
    • Feeling like your ear is full or stopped up, a condition called aural fullness
    • Hearing a ringing sound in your ear, which is known as tinnitus
    • Severe vertigo, which causes nausea, sweating and vomiting
    • Headaches and loss of balance
