How does vibracussor work?

According to an article published on Kinetic Spine & Sports, a website that provides chiropractic treatments information and services (its doctor has a clinic located in Weddington, NC ), this “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”.

Common conditions treated with VibraCussor

  • ‘Frozen’ shoulder – this is the stiffness and pain in shoulder, which symptoms usually begin gradually and get worse over time. This condition is also known as ‘adhesive capsulitis.
  • Joint fixations – if a person experiences a change in the normal motion of a join in his/her spine or limbs, he / she, most likely, is having this condition.
  • Myofascial restrictions – is caused by damaged fascia, a layer of fibrous tissue that has thickened and become sticky, causing the muscles to become restricted from free movement.
  • Postural distortions – when the structural alignment of your body becomes distorted or misaligned; lumbo-pelvic-hip, lower and upper-extremity postural distortions are some example of this condition.
  • TMJ problems – usually occur when there’s a problem in jaw muscles that is caused by some factors like the presence of osteoarthritis in the TMJ, stress, dislocation of the soft tissue, or even whiplash.
  • Trigger points – Trigger points – according to the American Family Physician website, these are discrete, focal, hyperirritable spots located in a taut band of skeletal muscles,” which produce pain. Some symptoms might include tension headache, tinnitus, and temporomandibular joint pain.
