Forums General Rapid Release Technology Re: Rapid Release Technology

Rapid Release Technology is great. I use my hands a lot regarding
crossfitters, powerlifters, bodybuilders, athletes of many different
sports and for me the RR Pro 2 helps me take stress off of them by not
having to use them as much. Now don’t get me wrong, I still will use my
hands for ART and use my tools (graston/SASTM) but I will use the RR Pro
2 to warm the area up and bring a tremendous amount of blood to the
area and break up scar issue. Even when I have worked an area thoroughly
I can use the RR Pro 2 on it as a finisher and the patient can still
tell a difference. Usually when you work a muscle for a while, sooner or
later you are just spinning your wheels meaning the patient will not
feel much of a difference because the area is so flushed with blood. Not
so with the Pro 2. The fact that the large green applicator can also
heat up is another feature that helps draw blood to the area. And blood
means nutrients and nutrients mean healing.

I always look for products that I can use that will allow me to work
smarter not harder. Digital xray, tables that elevate, hand free
modality equipment, etc. The Pro 2 fits in very well in that it helps
cut down on stress for your hands and fingers but also delivers the
vibrational resonance to break down scar tissue which if you are looking
to work more with athletes, they all have.

As for using the Pro 2 for your different techniques, if you use your
hands then yes it will be a good fit. But remember, the Pro 2 will not
be able to give you feed back like your fingers will. So while I will
use the Pro 2, I still use my other techniques and still use my fingers
to access. Any hand held instrument is good, but you still need a hand
to work it. Trigger points are hard for me to access when I do not use
my finger tips when using the Pro 2. But instead of kneading the muscle knot/trigger point
with my thumb, fingers, or a soft tissue tool, I can use the Pro 2. It
gets great results in less time, with less energy expended on my part. I
have worked on some very strong and very bulked up individuals over the
years and sometimes no matter how hard I would dig my thumbs or fingers
in, it did not seem to be enough. Not so with the Pro 2. It can
penetrate deeper tissues plus I do not have do dig in. I can just hold
the Pro 2 and that is has worked on all my patients. I have never had
anyone say I cannot really feel it. If anything, they are amazed at how
alive the area feels only after a few minutes. Remember scar tissue is
lack of blood flow to that area resulting in the scar tissue never healing and
be re-absorbed. The Pro 2 vibrates at a resonance that breaks up scar
tissue thus allowing blood flow to the area thus delivering nutrients to
the area thus allowing it to heal.

My background is in the healthfield with my undergraduate work in Sport
Biology (Pre-Med degree) and graduate school in chiropractic. I have
been a practicing chiropractor for 18 years specializing in the field of
athletics. I have experience in using ART (active release technique)
and Graston/SASTM (Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) technique. I
have worked with athletes of every sport including football, baseball,
hockey, basketball among others and some un-traditional sports such as
powerlifting, bodybuilding, strongman, and crossfit. The Rapid Release
Technology is great for any and all athletes to help prevent injuries
(Pre-hab) and help overcome injuries (Re-hab). The Rapid Release can be
utilized alone or with other soft tissue techniques to produce greater
