This instrument is a favorite with our patients. It is widely used in many of the top sports organizations for muscle, ligament and related myofascial conditions (ex. scar tissue / muscle adhesions).
The instrument delivers waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body and is very effective in releasing these various soft tissue conditions, increasing circulation and lymphatic flow.
The VibraCussor is distinctly different from traditional massage/vibration instruments. Most vibration devices produce a ‘back and forth’ motion across the surface of the body. The VibraCussor, by comparison, produces a piston-like ‘up and down’ motion. This motion creates comfortable compression waves that travel through to the body’s deepest connective tissues to enable the doctor to free up entanglements without the need for heavy forces. The VibraCussor can also be used to flush muscles and minimize soreness after an athletic event.
This instrument is used along with our other chiropractic services to relax tense muscles, relieve lymphatic congestion, restore joint motion, reduce post-exertion muscle soreness, release superficial and deep fascia and free adhesions and scar tissue. The benefits include reduction or elimination in the frequency and intensity of musculoskeletal pain, decrease the need for pain medication and greatly improve the ability to participate or resume activities.
Here’s a brief list of some of the more common conditions Dr. Danieley has successfully treated with the VibraCussor:
- Joint Fixations (hands, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot)
- Postural distortions
- Myofascial restrictions
- Trigger points
- “Frozen” shoulder
- TMJ (jaw) problems
