The spine is constantly in movement throughout the day, causing general wear and tear to the soft tissues. These tissues include any material that is not bone: ligaments, tendons, and muscles become worn and torn and benefit greatly from regular attention. At Associates in Chiropractic we have a range of methods that treat the soft tissues. Percussive massage is a healing therapy that can be used to great effectiveness for people suffering from tissue pain caused by an on the go lifestyle.
Percussive massage works by sending rapid-fire pulses into the tissues of the affected region. By vibrating the tissues, heat is created which increases blood flow, thereby transporting more nutrients and oxygen to the area in need. This relieves pain and quickens the healing process, allowing you to recover range of motion and improved stability.
Sufferers from the following conditions can find great relief from percussive massage:
- Herniated Discs
- Muscle Spasms
- Cramps and general muscle soreness
Percussive massage is good for breaking down excessive scar tissue in a healing area and it gently stretches the muscle fibers, relieving stiffness. If your muscles are need of stimulation to boost their healing potential, percussive massage is for you. Call our office in Hackensack today at (201) 342-6111 or e-mail us at [email protected].
