St. GEORGE PERCUSSION THERAPY

Are you tired of having to live with achy muscles and joints?

Erchonia Percussor Therapy might be just what you need to put you back on the road to pain-free living.  Dr. Hardy is one of the few health care practitioners in the Washington County area to deliver this treatment.

Percussive massage accelerates the growth and repair of tissues by providing concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body.

This heavily increases blood flow to the area causing pain relief and an increasing range of motion and function.

Percussive massage also provides a gentle stretch to the muscles and connective tissues improving responsiveness and performance.

Percussive Therapy utilize specific vibratory percussive forces that aim at soft tissue structures that surround joint capsules such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons, the most important tissues involved in joint motion.

This kind of therapy increases the overall range of motion leaving a person more relaxed and free of pain.

When I feel stressed (just about every day) I give myself 20 to thirty minutes of self-administered Percussion Therapy.

When Dr. Hardy focuses these treatment methods on those areas, the overall range of motion increases, is more relaxed, and free of pain.
