Leigh Damkohler Completes Advanced Graston Training

Dr. Leigh Damkohler

Leigh Damkohler, DC, a sports chiropractor and licensed massage therapist, recently completed advanced training in the Graston Technique, which she offers at her office on the Eastchester-Scarsdale border of Yonkers.

“Although I’ve been certified in Graston since 2004, I completed the most advanced training possible, Graston Technique Therapy Specialist, in May. GTS certification provides me with cutting-edge training on clinical applications of this soft-tissue therapy protocol,” Damkohler says.

She notes that soft-tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating, and that Graston Technique therapy can effectively treat all soft-tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post- surgical. The therapy can address scar tissue and fascial restrictions in order to speed rehabilitation, eliminate pain and help restore normal function and range of motion.

Among the common conditions treated with Graston Technique therapy are ankle, wrist or neck pain; fibromyalgia; hamstring injuries; hip, knee, heel, shoulder or back pain; tennis or golf elbow; trigger finger; and post-mastectomy or -caesarean scarring.

In practice for 22 years, Damkohler also offers chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage, CranioSacral Therapy, postural corrections, therapeutic exercise and nutrition. Her specialties are sports injuries; strains/sprains; disc herniations; carpal tunnel syndrome; thoracic outlet syndrome; tennis or golf elbow; sciatica; and back, neck, arm, leg and foot pain or numbness.
