What is Rapid Release Technology
Rapid Release Technology(RRT) is a handheld tool that harnesses the power of vibration to break down adhesions such as scar tissue. This treatment utilizes a handheld device to blast away scar tissue and nerve restricting blockages, freeing the body from pain, tension, and limited range of motion. RRT devices are registered as Class 1 Medical Devices by the FDA. Essentially, this means that they are at the lowest level of risk of all medical devices. RRT uses high-frequency vibrations at short strokes to deliver up to 170 hertz to the affected area. The optimal design of RRT devices allows them to be used most anywhere across the body, from the larger muscles of the back and legs, to even small joints like the toes and fingers.
What is the Purpose of RRT
The purpose of RRT is to target soft tissue problems affecting nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Often these problems exist as blockages, such as scar tissue. When nerve flow in the body is blocked we can experience pain, numbness, inflammation, and even loss of motion. To properly relieve the body of these pain symptoms, the blockage must be cleared and the nerves freed. The vibration offered by rapid release therapy works to release aches, pains, and stiffness. RRT can relax tight muscles, release trapped nerves, and break down scar tissue that is constricting mobility and function.
How RRT Helps with Scar Tissue
Following trauma such as overuse, injury, wear and tear, and surgery, the body forms scar tissue. The development of scar tissue is a normal reaction within the body’s natural healing process. In doing so, the body rushes new collagen cells to the point of injury in order to repair and strengthen the damaged tissue.However, while collagen can withstand extreme tension within the body, it is rigid and often inflexible. The scar tissue it forms also lacks blood vessels, meaning the tissue receives no circulation. For these reasons, scar tissue becomes brittle and constrictive. This tissue sequesters nerves, limits flexibility, reduces range of motion, and often causes pain. It is the objective of RRT vibration therapy to penetrate into and break apart this problematic scar tissue.
Who Can Benefit from Rapid Release Therapy
Those suffering from pain and tension in the soft tissue as well as the joints can benefit from the use of RRT. Common issues resolved with rapid release therapy include:
- Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Tennis Elbow
- Trapped Nerves
- Scar Tissue
- Muscle Spasms
- Ankle Pain
- Limited Range of Motion
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Pinched Nerves
- Knee Pain
Additionally, RRT is a cost-effective option for patients looking for a holistic, natural approach to pain relief. When compared to surgery that is often recommended to treat scar tissue and soft tissue dysfunctions, RRT is non-invasive, convenient, and affordable. Plus, it requires no downtime and delivers results that last.
