Compression Flossing

Treatment Modalities

The compression dulls the sense of pain and can allow the joint to move into a full range of motion, allowing all the muscles and fascia to glide further than previously tolerated.

Compression flossing, also known as "Voodoo flossing," is a technique that uses a stretchy band or "floss" wrapped around a joint or muscle to compress and mobilize the tissue. The compression created by the band improves blood flow to the area, while the mobilization helps to decrease swelling and restrictions in the tissue. The technique is often used to treat injuries, reduce pain, and increase range of motion in joints. Compression flossing has been found to be effective in treating conditions such as knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow. The technique can also be used to enhance the effectiveness of other forms of treatment such as strength training, mobility training and manual therapy. Compression flossing is typically done for a short period of time, usually between 1-5 minutes, and it is often used as a warm-up or cool-down technique. It is a safe and effective technique for treating injuries and increasing range of motion, and it can be used by athletes, fitness enthusiasts and people with chronic pain.
