Percussor Treatment Available at Arizona Family Health Centre

This is an extremely popular and comfortable instrument to help in many bone, joint, tendon, muscle and especially fascial problems.  Many musculoskeletal pain issues can be caused by improper muscle and fascial motion, inflammation, and adhesive changes.  This properly calibrated instrument is much smoother than most other handheld massage or percussion units.  It has a specialized motor unit that delivers a “galvanic wave” and has a highly variable vibrational speed adjustment to accommodate the area of the body being treated and provide a more comfortable treatment experience.  We also have different percussor heads to treat superficial generalized areas or more deeply, localized entrenched myofascial problems, in the spinal region or other areas of the body.

Making sure you have proper myofascial balance, smooth motion of the muscles/fascia, that is free of adhesions, is a key component of being pain free and healthy.  The fascial covers your bones, joints, tendons, muscles, nerves, and organs.  The fascial system has been likened to like a nylon stocking.  So that “kinks” or “punching up “of the fascial not only influences the motion locally but  areas further away.  So, sometimes treatment may be applied to other areas aside from the area of pain.
