RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is a new soft tissue, movement based. therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Some of the conditions that can be quickly resolved with RAPID-NFR include:
carpal tunnel syndrome
tennis/ golfers elbow
bunions and arthritic joints
These conditions all have one important thing in common: the pain they cause is often a direct result of neurological hypersensitivity-meaning that the nervous system has become hyper-vigilant and sensitized.
How does this happen?
Neurological hypersensitivity is the direct cause of neurogenic inflammation likely caused by the chronic artifacts of inflammation contributing to sympathetic dominance in the body-in other words the brain has become stressed creating a lock down in the bodily tissue, this can happen in several important ways:
acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
old injuries (chronic inflammation)
not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).
Each of these factors can cause the brain to lock down the tissues producing pain, loss of strength and decreased range of motion in the affected area. This neurological lock literally binds up and ties down tissues. As this process continues, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendinitis, and nerves can become entrapped.
What is a treatment like?
Every session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The RAPID provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Hypersensitive areas are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
RAPID sessions may be uncomfortable during the movement phase of the treatment. This occurs as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function.
Why choose RAPID?
Clients choose RAPID because of the rapid response to treatment. This helps active individuals get back to life.
