At Finish First, we not only use traditional chiropractic therapies, manual joint manipulation, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, rehab, etc., but we are also certified in the Graston Technique and FAKTR to recondition the soft tissue aspect of an injury.
Graston is a surgical grade steel tool that helps isolate and treat micro adhesions or scar tissue and is very effective in freeing up restrictions in soft tissues that alter the biomechanics of a joint.
FAKTR is a blend of functional soft tissue therapies such as IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissues mobilization), fascial flossing, cupping, deep tissue releasing and dynamic taping which all offer incredible releasing effects of taught and weak soft tissues and at the same time offer stability while maintaining full range of motion to an affected area of the body.
Both techniques have helped numerous professional athletes to stay on the field through the treatment of their injury, as well as, helped them recover much faster.
