ProActive Sports Rehab’s Anthony Goode Completes Graston Technique Training Course | Business
Anthony T. Goode, PT/ATC, co-owner of ProActive Sports Rehab, recently completed Graston Technique M1-Basic Training and is now treating patients with GT.
Graston Technique is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes.
“Graston Technique can be used to treat any movement system dysfunction that has been determined to have a soft tissue component,” said Goode.
The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of the GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function.
The technique also improves diagnostic treatment, increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably faster and better outcomes, speeds rehabilitation and recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication and allows the patient to continue to engage in everyday activities.
Historically, the Graston Technique has had positive outcomes in 75 to 90 percent of all conditions treated. It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries, and pre- and post-surgical patients.
