Vacuum Electrotherapy is a form of manual treatment that provides us the ability to stretch out tight and restricted tissues while INCREASING blood flow to scarred, tight or painful area. This is very important as many of our muscular injuries result in tight, guarded muscles. The tighter a muscle is the more difficult it is for blood and oxygen to reach the damaged area. Without this the healing process may be slowed or prevented.
Vacuum Therapy is a valuable tool when treating:
- Tight or restricted muscles
- Scar tissue
- Blood flow
- Capsular tightness (ex. shoulder adhesive capsulitis)
- Joint tightness
