We will be having a booth again this year at the Ida-Vend Super Sale. For those  of you that haven’t heard of this, it is a large annual community yard sale and every year we set up and perform some of our many services. It’s a great way to meet Joan and the rest of the staff and get a taste of the amazing things that we can do for you. The best part is of course it’s FREE; so come by, browse through everything our community neighbors have to offer and get one step closer to your best health.

That fluttery feeling in your chest

Atrial Fibrillation is an electrical disorder that causes rapid electrical signals in the heart that may reach hundreds of beats per minute. The rapid-fire signals interfere with the ability of the upper chambers to contract in an organized way.

I was sent a very user friendly explanation of ‘Afib’ – a great explanation of the problem in understandable terms can be found here.

Our office now has Rapid Release Technology!

Rapid Release TechRapid Release Therapy is a breakthrough in therapeutic technology

Many types of chronic pain have been identified, however many with chronic pain do not have a clinical diagnosis from their doctor. Scar tissue is frequently the culprit in this un-diagnosed pain. Repetitive motion, injury and surgery can result in the formation of scar tissue. Since there are no blood vessels that nourish this fibrotic tissue, it dies, becoming rigid and inflexible impinging nerves and impairing normal movement. These are also known as adhesions.

RRT’s Scar Tissue Therapy targets brittle scar tissue with the shearing force of planar waves that resonate with scar tissue. This has many benefits including what we believe to be a method to quickly and painlessly break up scar tissue.

Scar Tissue Therapy is focused on relief of soft tissue problems

These soft tissue problems affect nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Some conditions caused by scarring of soft tissue are:RTT pro1 best

  • MUSCLE SPASMS
  • TMJ
  • TENNIS ELBOW
  • TRAPPED NERVES
  • ADHESIONS
  • RANGE OF MOTION
  • NEUROMAS
  • CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
  • CONTRACTURES
  • TENDONOSIS

waves

When compression waves enter the body, they generate planar waves which generate
a shearing force (Red and Blue) perpendicular to the propagation direction (Black). This shearing force flexes and breaks up the brittle scar tissue lattice but doesn’t harm healthy supple tissue.

Experiments have been done with the frequencies used by RRT including the use of high-speed video shot at 2000 frames/second to determine the optimum resonant frequency for maximum effectiveness. Scar tissue absorbs energy at its resonant frequencies, efficiently facilitating its dissolution.

               inches                            RRT’s high-speed, short stroke and arc motion are keys to its  effectiveness as well as lack of any observed negative side effects.

Arc motion creates tension on the tissue because before it rebounds, the next strike tugs at it again. The combined effects of the shearing force of the planar waves with the tissue under tension magnifies the beneficial effects. The short 2mm stroke is key to optimizing the energy released into the tissue at the frequency, yielding just enough energy for the intended results without any observed negative side effects.

RRT Scar Tissue Therapy is fast, painless and lasting

RRT often helps those who have exhausted all other options such as medical doctors, podiatrists, chiropractic, medications, surgery, acupuncture, physical therapy, and pain injections. Rapid Release is arguably the safest and most cost-effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. Dr. Burrow got into this profession because she wanted to help people. We are helping alleviating suffering in our community by becoming part of this revolution in healthcare.
