The right tool in the right location can be a huge help in treatment. A percussion gun (far left) can prep a densification so it does not require so much manual work for the clinician and is less painful for the patient. Dry needling (center) can also aid in removing pro-inflammatory biochemicals in an area. Cupping (right) is wonderful for breaking up painful thickening in the hypodermis. Photos by Colleen Whiteford.
