Erchonia Percussor Adjusting Technique
The Erchonia Percussor technique is a pain treatment method provided by chiropractors using a special instrument. It uses specific vibrating and percussive forces that target soft tissue structures surrounding joint capsules such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This process produces a passive movement within the physiological joint space. The purpose is to increase overall range of joint motion.
The goal of the Percussor technique is to decrease the amount of pain in joints by increasing the joint range of motion. This technique will help restore the better elasticity of the joint complex. After treatment, many patients report feeling more flexible.
The instrument used for the Percussor Technique is a handheld device that delivers a special galvanic wave.
When performing the Percussor Technique, your chiropractor will have you lie down on a table. Dr. Waldorf will then use the percussor tool on target areas. This technique involves strong interaction between the patient and the doctor. The procedure will be performed “to patient tolerance.”
Patients who have received Percussor Technique may notice increased flexibility, reduced pain, more strength, and resistance to further injury.
