Massage has a myriad of benefits for anyone, injured or not. Massage improves circulation to keep muscles pliable and resilient. It improves healing by moving circulation into areas that are congested with inflammation. It can help prevent atrophy resulting from inactivity due to pain. It relieves the physical and chemical effects of stress.
Massage enhances athletic performance because it treats the adhesions between muscle fibers that are a natural result of vigorous exercise. Getting massage regularly can add years to your life.
NOTE: Treatment is often covered by insurance. The number of visits may vary depending on the severity of symptoms.
ConnecTX - IASTM ( instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization)
ConnecTX is an important innovation in the field of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), and a shining example of academia tapping into its accumulated knowledge to address the needs of the marketplace and advance the chiropractic profession. Developed at New York Chiropractic College (NYCC), ConnecTX was created by chiropractic clinicians and academicians sharing a vision of producing a patient centered and evidenced based technique that could evolve with the latest research.
In its infancy, the ConnecTX instrument was designed by Jonathan Dehors, DC with the help of his brother, Jason, with the intent of developing an affordable soft tissue instrument uniquely shaped to maximize therapeutic effectiveness, while providing practitioner comfort.
Always evolving. Always improving.
