Taping / Cupping / Dry Needling / Scrapping

 

Kinesio Tape

At ETC we have many therapists who are trained and certified in the use of Kinesio Tape to manage pain, provide support to joints, and reduce edema after injury or a surgery. This is the same tape and process used on high level athletes, including olympic athletes! Kinesio tape is a great tool to be used in conjunction with other therapies to help speed recovery and provide relief from pain.

Cupping

Cupping is a technique that dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. This technique is a form of soft tissue manipulation that can help improve tissue mobility, improve bloodflow, reduce inflamation, and promote relaxation. We have several therapist certified to utilize cupping as a form of a larger treatment plan to help you reach your goals.

Dry Needling

 Dry needling is a technique used by therapists to improve movement restrictions and decrease pain. With this technique a tiny dry needle (no medication) is inserted through the skin into the muscle tissue. Dry needling is different then acupunture and is backed by scientific research to help release or deactivate trigger points and muscle spasms.

Scraping

Scraping, also known as Gua Sha or Graston utilizes a stainless steel or plastic tool that the therapist will rub along muscle tissue to decrease adhesions and promote bloodflow. Though redness and bruising is a possibility, this technique is often pain free and when used in conjunction with other techniques, scraping can be a great way to decrease pain in promote healing.
