Physical Therapy Modalities

Rapid Release Technology (RRT)?

There is no charge to speak with Dr. Malakoff. Call (310) 663-9975 for a free emergency or non-emergency phone consultation.

rapid-releaseRapid Release Technology also known as RRT is a vibration therapy that uses special frequencies determined optimal for resonating with scar tissue. Scar tissue absorbs this energy at these resonant frequencies efficiently facilitating its dissolution. Scar Tissue is quickly and painlessly released and absorbed into the body. RRT uses frequencies that are three to four times faster than other methods, resulting in significant increase range of motion, Release Scar Tissue, reduce pain, and ease chronic and acute muscle spasm.

Rapid Release Therapy is helpful to reduce the pain associated with joint sprains, strains, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, muscle spasm, nerve pain and most musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel, Tennis Elbow, Neuromas and Adhesions, Trapped Nerves and Plantar Fasciitis. Nearly all soft tissue disorders are related to trauma, overuse, repetitive use or mechanical or postural dysfunction involve scar tissue and are successfully treated with RRT.

It is a breakthrough in scar tissue removal and works amazingly well on tissues that are tight, painful, and rigid by targeting the scar tissue in the muscle that causes tension, hypertonicity, triggers points, and restricted range of motion.

Basically , RRT is based on the fact that scar tissue is much more brittle and unable to maintain it’s structure against rapid force.

Like a wine glass (the scar tissue) and the Opera Singer (RRT machine), it shatters the scar tissue restrictions while maintaining and softening muscle tension and surrounding tissues.

Vibrocussor

Fibrotic repair and the formation of scar tissue is the body’s attempt at healing damaged tendons and ligaments. But scar tissue can become the culprit in perpetuating future pain and disability. Poor blood supply to these tissues, causes altered biomechanics, myofascial pain syndromes, and postural distortion. The Vibrocussor assists in allowing damaged collagen fibers to line up along normal directions of movement, improving the strength and performance of joints and soft tissues, decreasing pain and dysfunction.

Arthrostim

img-arthrostimSpecial nerves around joints called mechanoreceptors transmit signals to the brain that allow it to assess the situation in tissues throughout the body. Stimulating these mechanoreceptors with the 12 percussions per second generated by the Arthrostim creates the well being associated with the chiropractic adjustment, but only without the cracking, which is what sometimes stops some people from getting well. They are just too afraid to go to the chiropractor because of the sound that is created from fast stretching a joint, which is performed to fire up these mechanoreceptors. This is an alternative way to producing that stimulation.

It’s important to understand that most of the brain function is based on mechanoreceptor stimulation. Your brain has very little geography dedicated to vision or hearing. Most of the brain is mapped for mechanoreceptors. They are also called antigravity receptors; so just doing something like Yoga has a tremendous global neurological and beneficial effect on the body.

However, if mechanoreceptors in the spine are fixated, that is, the spinal joints that they surround are not moving correctly, then the system can break down and all kinds of health problems can occur that most people would never associate with their spine, which happens to be 20% of your central nervous system. The Arthrostim can not only stimulate these mechanoreceptors, but it can restore actual joint function also known as movement.

Ultrasound

Interferential Current

Used primarily for pain from muscle spasm and inflammation.
