HawkGrips® are ergonomically advanced, professionally engineered instruments specifically designed to detect and treat soft tissue dysfunction in muscle, fascia, tendons, and scar tissue. HawkGrips are contoured to facilitate treatment around different body parts. HawkGrips were designed to conform to different body soft tissue contours and joint shapes. HawkGrips were designed with the practitioner in mind. The instruments are textured to give the clinician a better “grip.” This allows the practitioner to use less force while holding the instruments, resulting in a reduction of fatigue in the hands and wrists. The handlebar instruments were designed to be held comfortably, with no stress being placed on the thumbs by the practitioner. HawkGrips allow clinical goals to be accomplished more effectively in less time, with less pressure, and less discomfort and strain on the part of the clinician.
HawkGrips can be used to treat a large range of abnormalities that include:
Tendinopathies -Such as lateral epicondylitis, trigger finger, and Achilles tendinitis.
Postural Abnormalities - Such as upper and lower cross syndrome.
Myofascial Pain Syndromes - Such as fibromyalgia, ITB syndrome, and plantar fasciitis.
Entrapment Syndromes - Such as carpal tunnel and thoracic outlet syndrome.
Ligamant Pain - Such as chronic and acute ankle sprains.
Scar Tissue/Adhesions - Such as mature post-surgical scarring.
(Best used in conjunction with creams used to treat the appearance of scars.)
Edema Reduction- Such as acute swelling and lymphedema.
