Your St. Catharines - Thorold practitioner for facial abrasion and release.
The Fascial Abrasion involves the use of a surgical steel tool to break down scar tissue and resolve fascial restrictions. Fascial abrasion is used to treat painful conditions resulting from injury or overuse disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, cervical and lumbar strain, tendinosis (achilles, rotator cuff) patella-femoral knee pain and tennis and golfers elbow.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
A specially designed instrument, is used to both identify and to treat areas of fascial restriction. The contoured shape of the instrument allows clinicians to use the tool to scan the body and locate the presence of fascial restrictions. The same instrument is then used to apply precise pressure to reduce fascial tension.
HOW DOES IT WORK AND WHY IS IT EFFECTIVE?
Fascial abrasion provides a controlled micro trauma that stimulates specialized nerve endings in the skin and fascia that help to normalize fascial tone. The tool can also be used to treat scar tissue that maybe causing pain or limiting motion. It can also stimulate a local inflammatory response that supports rebuilding of injured soft tissue.
