We have two different forms in our office – Gua Sha and Rock Blades. Using a tool enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The use of these instruments along with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercises helps restore pain-free movement and function.
The instrument is designed to comb over and catch fibrotic tissue, identifying any areas of restriction. This allows us to treat the soft tissue lesions with adequate depth, pressure and specificity. By following the kinetic chain, we will be able to find and treat the cause, rather than just the symptoms. Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. The soft tissue injury can be rebuilt into healthy functioning tissue by incorporating stretching, strengthening and ice treatments in the rehabilitation process.
