Soft Tissue Modalities Available In Westerville OH

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. These shockwaves are typically generated by a device and directed at specific areas of the body, such as injured or painful tissue. The energy from the shockwaves helps increase blood flow, promote tissue regeneration, and reduce inflammation, which can be beneficial for conditions like musculoskeletal injuries, tendonitis, and certain chronic pain conditions. Shockwave therapy is often used as an alternative to surgery or medication and is known for its relatively low risk and minimal recovery time. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results.

Red light laser therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses low-level laser or LED (light-emitting diode) devices emitting red or near-infrared light wavelengths. It is designed to promote tissue healing and reduce pain and inflammation. When applied to the skin, the red light penetrates into the body's cells, stimulating the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is essential for cell energy. This increased cellular energy can accelerate the healing process, making it useful for conditions such as musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain, and skin conditions. Red light laser therapy is considered safe. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results.

Graston scraping is a manual therapy technique to address musculoskeletal issues. It involves the use of specialized instruments with beveled edges to gently scrape or rub against the patient's skin in areas of soft tissue dysfunction, such as muscles, tendons, or ligaments. This scraping motion is aimed at breaking up adhesions or scar tissue that may have formed as a result of injury or chronic overuse. The goal of Graston scraping is to promote tissue healing, improve range of motion, reduce pain, and enhance overall function. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results.

Medical massage is a specialized form of massage therapy that focuses on addressing specific medical conditions and musculoskeletal issues. It is typically performed by licensed massage therapists who have received additional training in anatomy, physiology, and pathology. The goal of medical massage is to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote overall health by using targeted techniques such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy. Unlike relaxation massage, medical massage is often used in conjunction with a healthcare provider as part of a treatment plan to address issues like chronic pain, injuries, or rehabilitation. It involves a thorough assessment of the patient's condition to tailor the massage to their specific needs.

Cupping is a traditional alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction creates a vacuum effect, which draws the skin and underlying tissues upward into the cup. This technique increases blood flow, reduces muscle tension, and promotes relaxation. Cupping is often used to treat pain, inflammation, and various health conditions, and it leaves temporary circular marks on the skin due to the suction. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results.
