Graston Technique

Soft tissue injuries (STI) are when trauma or overuse occurs to muscles, tendons or ligaments. Most soft tissue injuries occur during sports and exercise activities, but sometimes simple everyday activities can cause an injury. Tendinitis and bursitis are common soft-tissue overuse injuries. Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and annoying. At Optimize Chiropractic, Dr. Christopher Ennis D.C uses the the Graston Techique. He is the only GT certified provider in the Cornelius area.

The Graston Technique® (GT) therapy is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post-surgical. GT helps with acute and chronic injuries to fascia, tendons, muscle and scar tissue of all kinds. It is used by several NFL, NBA, NHL and Olympic athletes on a regular basis. There is a testimonial by Michael Phelps the US swimmer who holds the world record in the most Olympic medics with 18 Golds.

GT uses specially designed stainless-steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function. The instruments also are used diagnostically to assess the kinetic chain, in an efficient manner using the principles of regional interdependence.

Dr Ennis has helped me with some nerve issues. He is thorough and takes the time to listen and explain each step he takes. I was hesitant to see a chiropractor at first but he has eased my fears. Half way thru my treatment schedule and I’m feeling more like myself already. Highly recommend him to all.
