RAPID NeuroFascial Reset
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is a neurologically based, active, therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within the body. RAPID is an evidence based manual therapy technique that can be used by all health care professionals to quickly and effectively eliminate pain in their patients.
Some of the conditions that can be quickly resolved with RAPID-NFR include:
- headaches /migraines
- back pain
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- shin splints
- shoulder pain
- plantar fasciitis
- knee problems
- tennis/ golfers elbow
- frozen shoulder
- bunions and arthritic joints
Utilizing a biopsychosocial perspective RAPID addresses the body’s perception of threat and danger. By bringing the brain to safety most painful conditions and ROM restrictions disappear.
Using nociception and movement RAPID induces a combination of descending inhibition within the nervous system, and a powerful increase in vasodilation. These together offer near immediate and lasting pain reduction in our patients.
Old injuries no more…
Though many painful conditions appear to have an insidious onset, very often they are a by-product of an old -possibly minor injury where, due to unforeseen factors, full healing was restricted. Biopsies on these areas have shown the tissue to contain concentrations of neuroimmunological factors, or the “chronic artifacts of inflammation”, these once healing cells are now known to be highly sensitizing to the nervous system often causing pain and dysfunction.
By applying RAPID, we can flush these areas, cause an increase in endogenous opioids and cannabinoids as well as create an influx of neuropeptides that are known to destroy these neuroimmunological factors which in turn desensitizes the nervous system.
What is a treatment like?
RAPID Therapists use a combination of hands-on palpation, examination, and treatment. The RAPID provider palpates the tissues with their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Hypersensitive areas are treated by combining precisely directed depth, tension with very specific patient movements.
RAPID sessions may be uncomfortable, 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. RAPID is ideal for both acute and chronic conditions.
