Percussors are quickly becoming the most popular form of treatment for a variety of conditions which were, in the past, treated with either surgery or medication. Whether it is a sore back, pain in the neck, rotator cuff injuries, or pain in the jaw, percussors are used on patients in a safe, effective, and non-invasive manner.
Working in such a way that targets the muscle bellies, percussors beat at a rate upwards of 3000 beats per minute. Acting as a “tenderizer” of sorts, the instrument has the ability to decrease muscle repair time, increase oxygen to the muscle, increase range of motion, and decrease the need for medications typically used to treat the pain associated with everyday pain. Athletes are particular fond of this type of treatment as it can increase athletic performance and helps to speed up the recovery time of muscles before and after a game or training.
Walker Physical Therapy and Pain Center utilizes the PMR 1000; an instrument designed to beat up at 3000 strokes per minute (more than any other percussor on the market). Call us at 1-800-916-6210 to set up an appointment with one of our therapist trained in the use of this amazing new tool!
