Rapid Neuro-Fascial Release Explained

RAPID Neuro-Fascial Release is a new soft tissue, movement based therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in releasing tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

Many conditions we are faced with are largely due to overused muscles. Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

  • Acute Conditions (Pulls, Tears, Collisions, Etc)
  • Accumulation of Small Tears (Micro-Trauma)
  • Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)

Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.

Every session is 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. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.  The individual may be asked to move in multiple directions and positions throughout the session.  It is because of this that a RAPID treatment can be performed through the clothing as no oil or creams are necessary.

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.   It is important to remember that pain doesn’t always equal damage and damage doesn’t always equal pain.

Many clients choose RAPID because of the rapid response to treatment. However keep in mind that everyone responds differently and at individual rates.  It may take a few sessions to resolve the condition.  The goal is always to get individuals returning to their regular activities as quickly as possible.
