At Flynn Chiropractic, we use percussive therapy, an incredibly effective massage technique that applies rapid, repetitive pressure to dissolve and stimulate the nerve receptors and promote healing.
By providing concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body, blood flow to those areas is heavily increased to cause pain relief and an increase in range of motion and function, improving both responsiveness and performance in muscles and connective tissues.
In short, anywhere you have a muscle, ligament, or tendon.
By utilizing specific vibratory percussive forces aiming at soft tissue structures surrounding joint capsules like muscles, ligaments, and tendons, percussive therapy is able to accelerate the growth and repair of tissues in the body.
When you push your muscles beyond their usual limits, you may experience annoying pain that can last for several hours after your workout. Percussive therapy can provide a fast recovery from muscle soreness.
Lactic acid builds up in your muscles after a workout. You can minimize lactic acid build-up with percussive therapy that will increase your blood circulation.
Fewer knots and tightness means a better lymphatic system because lymph can move more freely. As a result, a benefit is an improved metabolism and a more robust immune system.
