We have added four new myofascial transmitters to our Shockwave therapy treatments. Peri-Actor fascial heads can penetrate deep into tissues not reached by traditional methods.
Fascia can be viewed as a sack throughout the body that encapsulates and compartmentalizes tissue such as muscle. Recent theory focuses the important role of mobility, function and pain and consequently imbalances within the myofascial tissues.
What is Fascial tissue? If you look at a piece of meat and see that thin fibrous translucent fibrous surrounding tissue - that's fascia.
Myofascial treatments are often typically done by hand or with instrument assisted hand tools. These methods are known to be beneficial but may not reach the depth or have the effectiveness of mechanical tools such as Shockwave.
Practitioners at Healthview often combine contemporary fascial protocols with Shockwave head combinations. Shockwave treatment is a popular choice as an adjunctive modality with our clinicians.
