Indications for treatment with Freeceps:
If you have muscular complaints such as:
Myogelosis, strains, trigger points, trigger bands, irritation of tendon insertion, tensions.
For these problems, apply Freeceps to the affected body areas to loosen and manipulate the tense or irritated muscle fascia tissue using either trigger point or trigger band techniques.
With the trigger point technique you can reduce pain and release muscular tension by applying pessure locally for approx. 5-30 sec on the trigger point.
With the triggerband technique, twisted fascia bands can be corrected manually. The aim of this treatment is to break up the fascial adhesions and to unwind the twisted chain.
