Dr. Eric St. Pierre, DC introduces Graston Technique. This technique is the gold standard of myofascial release. There are many instrument-assisted soft-tissue techniques, however, Graston uses high quality stainless steel instruments. In other words, these instruments effectively dissipate adhesion, promote healing at the cellular level, and minimize how the brain produces pain. Graston Technique at ESP is not aggressive or excessively painful. Just as a deep stretch your brain may take a session or two to become accustomed to the effectiveness of the tissue loosening. However, most patients can appreciate the relieving experience following a treatment. In conclusion, patients often feel the tissue is more responsive to stretching, massage, and exercise.
