Percussive Massage Therapy, also known as tapotement, is a new breakthrough in treating patients with soft tissue pain. It is a mechanical high-intensity, high-powered massage that provides strong, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues, which helps accelerate the growth of tissues and repairing them. Vibration waves at an optimal frequency of 170 hertz delivered by percussive massage therapy devices help break down adhesions and internal scar tissue, which can limit flexibility, reduce range of motion, trap or otherwise inhibit nerves and cause pain.
