INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MASSAGE

INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MASSAGE

Physical Therapists have used their hands to improve blood flow and break up restrictions or myofascial adhesions in injured soft tissue for quite some time, but sometimes our fingers alone can't detect your restrictions at deeper levels to treat the full range of restrictions. Because of this, several companies have now developed handheld tools to perform instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization made from a variety of materials. Stainless steel instruments have the highest resonation and make it easier to feel both local and broad areas of tissue restriction, which produces outcomes that are equal to, or better than, palpation by our hands.
