DMS can be a stand-alone treatment for sports injuries. Dr. Tucker literally wrote the manual with Dr. Jake (the inventor of the DMS). DMS Method can be combined with numerous other modalities/therapies as a sports medicine approach to improve circulation of lymph, blood capillaries, veins, interstitial liquids, fascia and muscle. The DMS action helps to reroute stagnant fluid in the skin (i.e., edema, primary and secondary lymphedema), mucosa, muscles, viscera, joints, and periosteum.
Clinically we have observed:
Scars and healed surgical-incision sites become more supple.
Trigger points are eliminated.
Toxins are removed, making lymphatic drainage especially effective in tissue repair and regeneration.
Aids the reabsorption of swelling/edema.
The functioning of the immune system is stimulated through increased lymph flow.
Helps with chronic or subacute inflammatory processes.
Releases muscle spasms.
