Have you heard of the benefits of percussion therapy?
Percussion therapy is a method of inducing blood flow in a rapid manner to soft tissue in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments throughout the body.
With a series of concentrated pulses on one particular spot, it can relax local connective tissue, ease areas long haunted by scars or surgery, and increase the flow of infection-fighting white blood cells. It also elongates muscle fibers while providing relief on joints.
Percussion therapy is applied by a handheld device by a trained physical therapist or technician. At Polishuk Physical Therapy, we use advanced and innovative technology to provide you with the most effective massage for your needs.
