At Align Chiropractic & Sports Medicine, Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.
Not your ordinary massage gun! Rapid Release Technology, also known as RRT, uses painless, high-speed vibrations to melt scar tissue or adhesions found in spastic muscles and tender fascia. When your body heals itself, it forms adhesions. Adhesions are stiff, ropey fibers that pull on healthy tissues. They can also impair blood flow, pinch nerves and impair lymphatic drainage. Because adhesions seriously impair the body’s ability to function well, they must be broken up.
The Rapid Release Machine was pioneered and FDA approved as an effective therapy for large and small muscle groups to help in the process of breaking down scar tissue and adhesions. The high frequency and low strokes help relieve aches, pains, increase flexibility, break down scar tissue, relax muscles and promote blood circulation.
We use the Rapid Release Technology because it feels good and does not hurt, compared with the pounding action of slower devices or the scraping action of contoured tools.
