Massage therapists help clients prevent and recover from injuries, as well as address muscular imbalances, joint pain, mobility issues, and coordination. We cannot overstate the advantages of massage therapy and its many applications. Massage Tool Uses An assortment of massage tools is available to provide an array of different benefits, including breaking up adhesions, healing scar tissue and soft tissue, treating myofascial pain, and much more. Some of the most common conditions include shin splints, trigger finger, carpal tunnel, ligament and tendon sprains, muscle strains, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and back pain. Benefits of Using Edge Tools Typical massage techniques involve the therapist using their hands to deliver treatment. However, some areas of the body can be somewhat harder to target without the assistance of a physical therapy massage tool or edged scraping tool. General uses for tools with an edge typically involve scraping the tissue, which elicits micro-tears in the collagen fibers of the muscles and tendons. This prompts your body to produce an inflammatory response. These edge tools differ slightly from other rounded massage tools in that professionals primarily use them as muscle scraping tools. Their design helps with the breakdown of adhesions and scar tissue and to stimulate healing, while treatments such as foam rolling focus more on decreasing trigger points and improving flexibility. Furthermore, these tools are great for saving time—they can provide better results in a quicker fashion. Smaller massage tools, including edge tools, can be much more advantageous for smaller regions in comparison to larger equipment such as foam rollers, rolling sticks, and electronic massagers. While all these devices have their own unique advantages, smaller tools are the ideal choice for most therapists because they are more effective and allow access to smaller body parts such as the hands, wrists, fingers, neck, and toes, which bulkier tools are unable to reach.
