My New Year’s Resolution

Jan 5

Most of us start the New Year with resolutions of self-improvement.  One of my reoccurring New Year’s resolutions is to continue to deliver the most effective treatment available to my patients.  The study of pain management and rehabilitation, like any other field, is continually changing and evolving.  New research is available everyday, and with new information, the practice of rehabilitative medicine evolves.   My passion to deliver quality care has been my drive to stay up-to-date with the latest discoveries in my field.  As of way to improve my treatment outcomes, I am please to announce that as of January 2010, I have added Graston Technique® to Park Avenue Spine.

Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Graston Technique® has been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including:

Cervical sprain/strain (neck pain)

Lumbar sprain/strain (back pain)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain)

Plantar Fasciitis (foot pain)

Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

Medial Epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)

Rotator Cuff Tendinitis (shoulder pain)

Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain)

Achilles Tendinitis (ankle pain)


Scar Tissue

Trigger Finger

Shin Splints

Graston Technique® is successful in effectively treating most soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or acute and post surgical. The Graston Technique® offers many advantages to the patient such as:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

If you or someone you know has been suffering from an injury or chronic pain, please call today to schedule a free consultation. I would love to have the opportunity to help those who need treatment.  Please call me at 212-685-9123.


Yours in Health,

Dr. Paul M. Salinas, D.C.
