A relatively new therapy method that we have found to be extremely beneficial in physical rehabilitation is flossing therapy. It is also an effective way to maintain therapeutic results and progress.
A flossing band, also known as a compression cuff, is worn around the affected tissue for one to three minutes during training or treatment which results in a positive impact on the autonomic nervous system. Stimulation of pressure receptors in the tissue leads to an inhibition of pain transmission and ultimately a reduction of pain, improved blood circulation, and decongestion of the tissue. The flossing method is a good complement to some of our therapy techniques to reduce pain and improve joint mobility.
