Swanson McArthur Physical Therapy is a provider of kinesiotaping.

Kinesiotaping is a technique developed to help support muscle and
connective tissue function, reduce swelling and improve lymphatic
drainage. Our certified professionals have been specially trained to
apply kinesiotape in the most effective manner possible to conditions
involving the spine and the extremities.  Kinesiotape is a light elastic
tape rather than the rigid athletic tape that is sometimes used in athletics.
Swanson McArthur Physical Therapy is a provider of  Graston - Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization.

What is the Graston Technique?

The Graston Technique® incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function.

The Technique:

• Separates and breaks down collagen cross-links, and splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers
• Increases skin temperature
• Facilitates reflex changes in the chronic muscle holding pattern
• Alters spinal reflux activity (facilitated segment)
• Increases the rate and amount of blood flow to and from the area
• Increases cellular activity in the region, including fibroblasts and mast cells
• Increases histamine response secondary to mast cell activity

How are the Instruments used?

The Graston Technique® instruments are used to enhance the clinician’s ability to detect adhesions, scar tissue or restrictions in the affected areas. Skilled clinicians use the stainless steel instruments to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies the areas of restriction. Once the tissue has been identified, the instruments are used to break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body.
