Rapid release is a therapy used to release muscle adhesions.  An adhesion is a band of scar tissue that binds two parts of your tissue together that should remain separate. Muscle adhesions may appear as thin sheets of tissue similar to plastic wrap or as thick fibrous bands. They can trap nerves, causing pain and numbness or limiting range of motion.   Adhesions develops when the body’s repair mechanisms respond to any tissue disturbance, such as surgery, infection and trauma.  Through the use of High Speed Vibration Therapy (HSVT) the shearing force of planar wave energy passes safely through flexible healthy muscle tissue, but is readily absorbed by the brittle, dense scar tissue.  Scar tissue dissipates and nerve function is restored. We do mini sessions...

Focusing on the spine and nervous system, the job of the doctor is to help the patient by removing barriers to healing. The nervous system is the control system of your body.
