Rapid Release Therapy is an advanced tool used for connective tissue work. As it name states, when used skillfully it can rapidly break down scar tissue and adhesions along with very stubborn fascia formations. It is used by numerous professional sports teams and mainly found in Chiropractic offices . Please click here to watch an interview with a client describing her experience with Rapid Release Therapy.
Rapid Release Therapy’s forte is the breaking down of scar tissue, adhesions and fascia imbalance. Old scar tissue in particular can be very challenging to break down using traditional connective tissue modalities. Scar Tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive stress. This scar tissue is made from collagen just like our skin but without blood supply it dies, dries out, constricts and becomes brittle. Scar tissue fastened to tissues not normally connected, is called an adhesion. Adhesions can spread, entrapping nerves, causing pain and numbness or limiting range of motion. Rapid Release Therapy focuses on relief of soft tissue problems caused by scar tissue adhesions. The shearing force of planar wave energy created by this device, passes safely through flexible healthy tissue, but is readily absorbed by the brittle, dense scar tissue causing it to painlessly break apart. This therapy increases healing time for acute injuries and can resolve chronic injuries. It excels at resolving old joint injuries such as shoulder, neck, lower back, knees, ankles and feet.
When combined with neuro-muscular techniques, electro-acupuncture, polarity therapy and cranial sacral therapy this technology can increase treatment response exponentially.
