If you are in need of stress reduction, sports rehabilitation, or postural drainage, percussion may be the ideal treatment method for you! They are used to aid in many forms of treatment, including massage therapy, respiratory therapy, and physical therapy treatments overall.
The idea of percussors for Physical Therapy treatments is to release deep tissue muscle and fascial restrictions and provide relaxation to allow greater range of motion, decreased pain, and return to movement patterns that were previously restricted. Synergy has several brands of percussors which are used for different conditions and body parts, but our most used percussor is the Erchonia Variable Percussor. The Erchonia Variable Percussor is a hand-held mechanical adjustment device with a unique “Galvanic Wave” action that can be used to reduce muscle spasms, increase circulation, release fascia restrictions, drain the lymphatic system and more. A variable speed feature allows the practitioner to change speeds to the desired output, giving the highest degree of control.
If you have been dealing with persistent pain, stress, or respiratory issues in your daily life, percussor treatments can help get you back to living your life comfortably. At Synergy Rehab & Wellness, we are happy to say that our Staunton or Waynesboro, VA physical therapists are highly experienced in the use of Erchonia percussion for rehabilitation.

What are the benefits of percussion?
Percussors can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. Perhaps the four main benefits of percussors include:
- Comfort for the patient
- Accommodations for any and all patients who may be ideal candidates for this form of treatment
- Stress relief, especially on overworked joints
- Consistent performance for athletes or those who are highly physically active
Percussor devices target the muscles and ligaments by distributing waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues. This enhances lymphatic flow and circulation throughout the body, thus allowing areas to loosen up and relieve pain. It is commonly used to release joints, decrease muscle spasms, or loosen tight areas on the body.
These treatments are pain-free for the patient, as heavy equipment is not used – rather, percussor devices are all hand-held, making them easy to use and gentle for the patient. Percussors can significantly reduce chronic pain, and in many cases, may even relieve it altogether. Whatever your case may be, percussors just may be the answer for you.
