It can feel like there are no solutions available if you live with a chronic injury affecting your quality of life. You may have tried other treatments in the past, like stretching, and found they don’t relieve your discomfort. The cause of your troubles may need more than traditional massage or physiotherapy—like a computer, your body might need a reset to heal itself. 

RAPID neurofascial reset is a therapy technique that uses the body’s own neural mechanisms to help relieve pain, inflammation, and restriction of movement. It addresses both the neurological and the fascial components of your body

RAPID Neurofascial Reset Can Help Address Chronic Pain

The fundamental idea behind the treatment is that neurofascial reset can quickly reset the nervous system to help it better sense what’s going on in the body and more accurately respond to its needs, helping improve healing and inflammation. 

This treatment may help treat several chronic conditions, including: 

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Migraines
  • Shin splints
  • Back pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sciatica

Besides chronic pain, neurofascial reset can help address acute problems like recent injuries, making it beneficial for short and long-term issues. 

What Is Fascia? 

Fascia is the connective tissue located throughout your body, holding your muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments together. When it’s working optimally, your fascia can move without restriction, letting you bend, twist, and complete your favourite activities pain-free. 

Tight, uncomfortable, or painful muscles may be relieved by fascial stretching, helping you feel more comfortable in day-to-day life. During RAPID neurofascial reset, working your fascia is a key component of treatment. 

How Does RAPID Neurofascial Reset Work? 

The main idea behind neurofascial reset is neurological, meaning that treatment looks at the central nervous system. When you experience an injury in a specific area of the body, your nervous system becomes highly focused on this injury and attempts to protect it, leading to discomfort. 

Neurofascial reset works by using pressure to stimulate the periosteum of the connective tissues throughout the body. This stimulation helps reset neurological pathways to restore the range of motion and decrease pain. Intense pressure on the nervous system helps trigger someone’s flight or flight response.

When performing neurofascial reset, practitioners focus on identifying areas of tightness or restriction to target treatment for those specific areas. Through hands-on stretching techniques, practitioners apply light pressure along the length of a muscle while tracking changes in tension during movement.

What Are the Benefits of RAPID Neurofascial Reset? 

Many patients seek treatment like neurofascial reset to help relieve pain and improve future movement. The benefits of treatment may include:

  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced discomfort 
  • Faster recovery times from injury 
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved posture and balance
  • Enhanced performance and energy levels

When Is RAPID Neurofascial Reset Best for Your Needs? 

While neurofascial reset has many benefits, it’s typically ideal for treating acute problems like sports injuries. Your therapist can treat these more sudden issues with neurofascial rest, while chronic problems may need additional manipulation, like other forms of massage therapy. 

If you injure yourself, the sooner you have the issue assessed and treated, the faster you’ll be back to your favourite activities. 

What Can You Expect During Treatment? 

Before treatment begins, your therapist will assess your pain and discomfort to identify the best therapy method for your needs. Several types of massage therapy can help you live life to the fullest. 

Expect a hands-on approach to treatment where your therapist touches certain areas of the body to identify problems like tightness or discomfort. Your first session may take a little longer so your therapist can identify where to make adjustments. You may experience soreness throughout treatment as your therapist stimulates your nerves to improve healing. 

After treatment, your therapist will discuss your next session and answer any questions you may have. 

Is RAPID Neurofascial Reset Covered by Insurance?

Like other forms of massage therapy, RAPID neurofascial reset can be covered by insurance. Several types of massage therapy are covered under insurance. 

Everyone has a different insurance policy—some patients may have greater coverage. Make sure you carefully review your insurance policy for your total coverage and any possible requirements. For example, while massage therapy doesn’t require a referral to receive treatment, some insurance companies require a referral to qualify for coverage.
