Pettibon Tendon Ligament Muscle Stimulator (PTLMS)
What is the Pettibon Tendon Ligament Muscle Stimulator?There are a number of soft tissue therapy techniques which can be successfully employed to assist in the reduction of pain and muscle tightness and spasm. The Pettibon Tendon Ligament Muscle Stimulator, or PTLMS, was developed to enhance the chiropractic adjustment through pain control, enhanced metabolic function and regeneration of injured para-vertebral soft tissues. PTLMS is a hand held instrument which delivers a specific percussive muscle treatment designed to relieve spasm, disperse toxic substances and decrease painful soft tissue fibrosis. Using the PTLMS directly before adjusting warms up the area, allowing for a better adjustment with less force. It is also an invaluable tool when treating extremity complaints. The PTLMS system focuses on accurately determining the exact cause of the pain and dysfunction, designing and implementing a specific, tailor made treatment program, and most importantly providing the tools for patients to not only maintain the positive changes, but also continue to experience improvements in health.
