Lynn Simon PT,DPT,ATC and Carlent Porter COTA successfully completed the 12 hour M1-Basic Training in the Graston® Technique Therapy in Ortonville, MN.
During this 2 day course, therapists learned different methods of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, which included diagnostic and therapeutic applications and procedures. Carlene is shown using this non-invasive technique with specially designed stainless steel instruments on a patient. The Graston® Technique enables therapists to address scar tissue and facial restriction during rehabilitation.
This specialized treatment is clinically proven to achieve faster and better patient outcomes in treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow), Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s elbow), Scar Tissue and Trigger Finger. Other injuries Lynn has used to treat patients and found good results are tendonitis of the Achilles tendon, patellar tendon and plantar fascitis as well as chronic upper back/neck pain. Acute injuries such as an ankle, hamstring or quadriceps strain are some other injuries that can be treated. Injuries and pain are debilitating. Lynn and Carlene are excited to use their traditional therapy methods and the Graston® Technique can help patients enjoy life again.
