What Is Rapid Release Technology?
Rapid Release Technology, sometimes known as RRT, is a therapy that uses an FDA-registered, high-speed vibration device at 10,000 vibrations per minute to treat soft tissue. Muscle spasms are calmed by the high-speed vibrations targeting soft tissue where lack of motion, pain, and numbness are experienced.
Healthy tissue is not affected by the RRT vibrations, and the vibrations simply pass through to reach the scar tissue that has become a muscle or nerve adhesion. The vibrations are absorbed by the scar tissue to break up their connection to muscles and nerves. The therapy is a painless and safe process that is effective for numerous patients.
How Can Scar Tissue Be Broken Up and Treated?
Rapid Release Technology is exceptionally effective for treating scar tissue adhesions. Scar tissue is formed to heal an injury. Collagen forms to heal the wound and protect the tissue like skin would normally protect healthy tissue. When blood flow is restricted from reaching the collagen-rich scar tissue, it dries out and becomes constrictive and tight.
When the scar tissue is connected to nerves and muscle as an adhesion, it can decrease the muscle’s range of motion and cause pain or numbness. We use RRT in scar tissue therapy to break up the formation of adhesions and free the muscles and nerves to lessen the pain, numbness, and restriction.
What Else Can Be Treated?
RRT can also effectively treat other painful areas on the body, stiffness, and movement issues. The technology provides comfort and relief after a single session and can provide long time results after several sessions.
The following pain and movement issues can be relieved by RRT:
- Muscle spasms
- Joint pain
- Trapped nerves
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ)
- Stiff joints
- Sports injuries
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
RRT helps patients with scar tissue that is restricting their movement and causing discomfort. The therapy can also be used to treat a variety of muscle and joint injuries that limit movement and cause pain. The treatment takes only two to five minutes to perform, so you don’t need to take much time out of your schedule for a session. During a consultation, Dr. Lee Petrucci can give you an idea of how many treatment sessions you might need.
