Scraping therapy is a form of manual therapy on soft tissues where a small tool is used to gently scrape over soft tissue (fascia, ligaments, tendons, and muscles). This aids in breaking down scar tissue that results from trauma or overuse. Scraping therapy also helps promote a better healing environment by improving circulation in the acute area. Some advantages of scraping therapy include pain relief, a decrease in overall treatment/recovery time, and a reduced need for anti-inflammatory medication. You may benefit from scraping therapy if you’ve been experiencing neck pain, back pain, sprained ankle, torn tendons/ligaments, or chronic pain.
