Movement is the blueprint for repair. Tissues that heal with functional movement are better suited to meet functional demands. Percussive Therapy utilizes rapid movement to accelerate the healing process.
The Raptor helps to reduce pain associated with joint sprains, bursitis, muscle spasms, nerve pain, and other musculoskeletal disorders. Almost all soft tissue disorders are related to trauma, overuse, repetitive use or mechanical/postural dysfunction. Most of these disorders involve scar tissue and are successfully treated with the Raptor
Muscle, Tendon, and Joint Pain
The most common causes of muscle pain are injury or trauma, overuse, and tension or stress. Where injury or trauma has occurred, percussive therapy can speed up the healing process by expediting the breakdown of inflammation to trauma areas. Likewise, when areas of the body are overused or under stress, percussive therapy can enhance circulation to affected regions and relieve underlying tension.
Therapeutic massage helps the body recover from the stresses of strenuous exercise, and facilitates the rebuilding phase of conditioning. Rehabilitation leads to removal of waste products and better cell nutrition, normalization and greater elasticity of tissues, deactivation of trigger points, and faster healing of injuries. It all adds up to relief from soreness and stiffness, better flexibility, and less potential for future injury.
Post-Surgery and Post-Injury Recovery
Following injury or surgical repair, the body undergoes the active repair process of inflammation. Percussive stimulation expedites the breakdown of the inflammatory process, in addition to scar tissue and adhesions.
Scarring or injury to the myofascial network of connective tissue is a major cause of pain and impeded motion. The Raptor alleviates these problems by breaking up, or “releasing,” constrictions or snags in the fascia.
