There are two types of wounds.Â Â AcuteÂ wounds that are in some stage of healing and chronic wounds which are still unresolved.Â The later are so common and go on for so long that they are better described as ancient wounds.
The color and feel if the tissue ofter a clue to their existence, but they are best defined by the pain and limits on mobility they produce.Â Â Ancient wounds mayÂ possesÂ inflammation, edema, tissue blockages, accumulated toxins, mucus, poor circulation, or dehydration.
Many of these ancient wounds reside in the soft tissue. There are few effective soft tissue therapies available and almost none are provided by the medical community.Â This explains the reason so many people are walking wounded.Â Ancient wounds are a failure to provide the body with the help it needs to overcome the condition it faces. So what can be done?Â One very effective therapy is:
TRANSCUTANEOUS TISSUE DECOMPRESSION (TTD)
TTD has emerged as a highly effective therapy for tissue healing and painÂ resolving methodology, ideally suited for chiropractors, physical therapist, massage therapistÂ and sports therapist. TTD delivers a variable negative differential pressure to the soft tissue.Â
The application of TTD establishes a temporary fluid imbalance resulting in a rapid profusion within the tissue which results in a release of accumulated waste, rehydration, and improved vascularization of the soft tissue.Â The kneading process created by the variable pressure extends the tissue breaking up stagnation, scar tissue, adhesions and chronic stress contraction in muscles and myofascial tissue.Â
Trancutaneous tissue decompression therapies go by manyÂ other names, sub-atmospheric therapy, negative pressure therapy, decompression massage therapy (DMT) to name onlyÂ a few.Â This natural, painless and powerful therapyÂ has been demonstrated in clinical trials to rapidly accelerate the tissue restoration process.Â If you are tired of carrying yourÂ ancient wound aroung, consider seeing a provider who is trained in this method.
