Are You Suffering From the Effects of Scar Tissue?
Scar tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive motion. An adhesion occurs when scar tissue attaches to tissues which are not normally connected. These adhesions can spread, pinching nerves, causing pain or numbness, and limiting mobility.
Rapid Release Therapy is helpful to reduce the pain associated with joint sprains, strains, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, muscle spasm, nerve pain and most musculoskeletal disorders. Nearly all soft tissue disorders are related to trauma, overuse, repetitive use or mechanical or postural dysfunction. All these conditions involve scar tissue and are successfully treated with RRT.
Here are Some Medical Conditions That RRT Helps Treat:
- Carpal tunnel syndromeRapid Release Therapy
- Chronic tendinitis
- Muscle spasms
- Nerve compression (trapped nerves)
- Limited range of motion
- Shortened muscles
- Pinched nerves
- Shoulder pain
- Ankle pain
- Knee problems
- Tennis elbow
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Trigger points
How Rapid Release Therapy Helps Break Up Scar Tissue
RRT works by targeting brittle scar tissue with the shearing force of planar waves that resonate with scar tissue. The planar waves cause the body to vibrate and are not uncomfortable. This shearing force flexes and breaks up the brittle scar tissue lattice but doesn’t harm healthy supple tissue.
Treatments are generally between 3-7 minutes and involve applying the RRT directly on the affected area being treated. RRT uses circular, parallel and perpendicular strokes with the device to the soft tissues of the entire involved area. The therapy yields just enough wavelength energy for the intended results without any observed negative side effects.
Before treating you, we will perform a health evaluation and initial exam to determine if Rapid Release Therapy is right for you.
So, if you suffer from undiagnosed pain due to scar tissue or if you have trigger points that will not release even with massage therapy, Rapid Release Therapy may help reduce your pain, increase range of motion, and improve your quality of life.
