What is Percussive Therapy?

Percussive therapy is a revolutionary treatment option offered to patients at Innaimo Chiropractic by Dr. Donn Innaimo.  The therapy utilizes a hand-held instrument called a Percussor.  The Percussor applies gentle waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body which promotes an increase in lymphatic flow and circulation.  The Percussor can also be used to decrease muscle spasms, release joints and loosen up fixated areas without the use of heavy force.  It can work wonders in alleviating chronic pain. The release of fascia can also trigger the release of emotions in a patient. Our truly holistic approach in treating a patient involves body structure, biochemistry and emotions. We take the additional time to really work with patients for effective results. In over 900 cases of Dr. Donn Innaimo’s patients, over 90% experienced significant relief when following our recommendations.
