Scraping therapy - Physical therapist uses a small wooden tool to scrape soft tissue, break up scar tissue and promote healing

It’s not uncommon to have a longer healing time for soft tissue injuries compared to bone fractures. If you’ve ever sprained a joint or experienced tendinitis, you understand the frustration. RPT offers a service called scraping therapy (or Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), which has high success rates in accelerating the healing process of soft tissues. like fascia, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

What is Scraping Therapy?

Scraping therapy is a form of manual therapy on soft tissues where a small tool is used to gently scrape over soft tissue (fascia, ligaments, tendons, and muscles). This aids in breaking down scar tissue that results from trauma or overuse. Scraping therapy also helps promote a better healing environment by improving circulation in the acute area. Some advantages of scraping therapy include pain relief, decreased overall treatment/recovery time, and a reduced need for anti-inflammatory medication. You may benefit from scraping therapy if you’ve been experiencing neck pain, back pain, sprained ankle, torn tendons/ligaments, or chronic pain.
