Scraping

What is Scraping

Scraping is a treatment technique using tools which enables clinicians to locate and treat soft tissue tightness and injury. The scraping instruments help break up these adhesions and restore normal tissue mobility, just like any other form of soft tissue mobilization or deep tissue massage. This technique is can also be used in conjunction with soft tissue work, joint mobilization, and/or therapeutic exercise, thus correcting many musculoskeletal issues that cause pain.

Common conditions that may benefit from the Scraping Technique are tendonitis along with muscle strains & sprains.
