Dr. Royer Achieves Healing Results with Graston Technique

by | July 20, 2012

Dr. Bryan D. Royer, DC, DACNB, CCSP, CKTP™, and owner of Harmony Chiropractic Center, Inc., in Toledo, OH, announces achievements in patient healing as a result of the Graston Technique®.   Dr. Royer, a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the National University of Health Sciences, is a Licensed Chiropractic Physician in Ohio.  His studies in the Graston Technique began in 2003, and he received certification in January 2010.

Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization procedure that detects and treats areas of adhesions (scar tissue) in muscles, tendons and ligaments; problems that can lead to pain and dysfunction.  It uses six stainless steel instruments, to glide along a patient’s affected areas, which break up these adhesions.  “Graston allows me to provide my patients with enhanced care using this improved ability to locate soft tissue adhesions with more precision and at a greater depth, especially around bony prominences.  It allows the patient to achieve improved results, and in less treatment time,” Royer said.  As part of the cross-fiber treatment, Dr. Royer also teaches each patient appropriate stretches and rehabilitative exercises, as appropriate to the specific condition.

Angie Green, a local fitness professional and popular instructor for aerobics classes, hurt her knee last year, shortly before she was scheduled to make an important business trip.  She was scheduled for surgery when she learned of Dr. Royer.  “After discovering Dr. Royer and having him administer techniques such as Graston and Kinesio Taping®, I began to feel pain relief after one week and was able to avoid surgery,” Green said.  Unfortunately, she recently tore the meniscus in her other knee and required surgery to repair it.  “With the help of Dr. Royer and using Graston, I experienced less pain, swelling and bruising, which has helped me recover much quicker after my surgery.”

The concept of cross-fiber treatment is grounded in the works of English orthopedist James Cyriax.  The use of Graston Technique instruments and protocol is new.  Graston Technique is used to treat top athletes by more than 50 professional and collegiate organizations, including the U.S. Olympic Team and the Cleveland Cavaliers.  It is also successful for fans and for many people with pain and mobility issues.

Dr. Royer is a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and he is the only health professional in the Toledo area who is certified in both Graston Technique and Kinesio Taping.  He is also an instructor in anatomy, physiology, general biology and microbiology at Owens Community College.
