State-of-the-art treatments for soft tissue injuries, disorders

Massage Therapy

The professional team at the Brampton location of HealthMax Physiotherapy Clinics offers patients certified, state-of-the-art treatments — including Active Release Techniques® (ART®) and the Graston Technique® (GT®) — for dealing with chronic pain in soft tissue injuries and disorders.

Active Release Techniques® is a hands-on method for locating and evaluating the problem areas of muscles, nerves, tendons, fascia and surrounding soft tissues. Once identified, the area is treated by applying strenuous pressure and precisely moving the body part as a more aggressive form of massage therapy to enable the breakdown of adhesions.

Graston Technique® is an instrument-assisted soft tissue treatment. This technique is especially effective in treating scar tissue and fascial restrictions that can affect the range of mobility during healing and rehabilitation in patients. The non-invasive use of stainless steel instruments is also used to manipulate and break down adhesions.

Active Release Techniques® and the Graston Technique® can each be successfully used as standalone treatments or in combination with other therapies, such as chiropractic adjustments or massage therapy. Your certified treatment provider will work with you to ensure that any discomfort or soreness can be minimized as much as possible for an effective result.

In most cases, these proven soft tissue treatments are beneficial in reducing the need for medication, decreasing the overall treatment time and enabling a quicker recovery.

Injuries and conditions that can be successfully treated using ART® and Graston include but are not limited to headaches, sciatica, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, neck and back pain, and much more.
