Civil War Tools


I am not saying that all Graston work is bad, as I have seen it used a few times with success (3 therapy sessions in 10 years). The problem is I have seen it fail with grave consequences that made things worse, and me asking are we evolving as therapists. Hands on work is hard. I know. I have done 5000 hours of massage and I pace myself to ensure my hands and wrists don’t blow up from the hard work. I wish lasers, hot stones, butter knives, or chinese cups would be just as good but nothing beats the hands. Charlie Weingroff had a nice review of many therapy options with some opinions of what he likes and uses. Charlie is very well educated and his blog is a nice read. Of course I don’t agree with everything, but as the posts of Nick T youtubes I hope I can share what I do find helpful. Instead of just sharing my opinion, I will share a good read about the use of Graston in sports medicine.
