Rapid Release Therapy is focused on relief of soft tissue problems affecting nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Soft tissue disorders are usually a result of overuse, injury or surgery.
Scar Tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive stress. This scar tissue is made from collagen just like our skin but without blood supply it dies, dries out, constricts and becomes brittle. Scar tissue fastened to tissues not normally connected, is called an adhesion. Adhesions can spread, entrapping nerves, causing pain and numbness or limiting range of motion. Un-diagnosed pain and restricted mobility are likely to be caused by these adhesions. Scar Tissue Therapy ™ is focused on relief of soft tissue problems caused by scar tissue adhesions. The shearing force of planar wave energy passes safely through flexible healthy tissue, but readily absorbed by the brittle, dense scar tissue.
Scar Tissue therapy is painless and an effective way to treat conditions that may not have been effectively treated in the past. Tsavo’s has recently purchased a unit and is utilizing this treatment on patients in addition to their regular treatment.
Here is a partial list of conditions caused by scarring of soft tissue: Tendonosis, muscle spasms, trapped nerves, poor range of motion, contractures, neuromas, adhesions, temporomandibular joint disorder.
