Healthview is a Graston Provider
We are pleased to offer Graston Technique at Healthview Therapy Centre. Dr. Robert Muir and Kylynn Hill are both Graston certified practitioners. Graston Technique is a soft tissue mobilization technique utilizing specially designed tools to assist athletes and individuals with their injuries.
When scar tissue is present, or when a practitioners hands can't get deep enough, the Graston tools help to reach the areas that are bothering a patient and help heal the tissues. Using the Graston tools puts the practitioner at an advantage owing to the design of the tools. The tools are able to conform to certain parts of the body better than ones hands alone. The Graston tools also carry a “different” sensation back to the practitioner allowing us to better diagnose and find restrictions (a.k.a. scar tissue) that can lead to dysfunction in muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue.
Active Release Techniques (ART), is a patented, soft-tissue treatment system that treats problems associated with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. This non-invasive hands-on technique can simultaneously locate and break-up scar tissues, vastly improving overuse and strain/sprain injuries. By breaking and releasing restrictive adhesions, ART can restore mobility, increase circulatory functions, and increase neurological function.
Dr Robert Muir is ART certified and provides this treatment option to patients as needed. ART treatment is very popular with his patients and can be included in a treatment along with other therapy options, or on it's own as a stand alone treatment. Anyone with any questions about ART can give us a call at 204-885-5864 or send an email here. ART is also partially covered by MPI and WCB.
