What is RAPID NeuroFascial Reset?
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset is a progressive, evidence-based, soft tissue, therapeutic technique that quickly alleviates tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It works to desensitize and calm hypersensitivity in the nervous system that causes pain.
Neurological hypersensitivity is the direct cause of neurogenic inflammation which can become chronic and creates sympathetic dominance in the body. This can happen in the following ways:
- Acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc.)
- Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
- Old injuries (chronic inflammation)
- Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)
In other words, the brain has become stressed creating a lock down in the bodily tissue 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.
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/ golfer’s elbow
- Frozen shoulder
- Bunions and arthritic joints
What is a treatment like?
Each session is a combination of examination and treatment. The texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves is evaluated through touch. 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.
Initial assessment: 1 hour
Subsequent appointments: 30-45 mins
