What is Robotic Precision Therapy?
Robotic Precision Therapy (RPT) uses the RX2600 Therapeutic Robot to administer gentle pressure in intervals to a specific muscle. This process relaxes muscles as well as relieves aches and pains.

One Approach: Individual Cases - Individual Treatment
Our clients often come to us after seeking relief for months, or even years. They’ve tried medication, exercises, injections, massage, surgery or they’ve resigned themselves to living a life ruled by pain and discomfort. RPT Clinic is committed to helping clients find healing and wholeness. Injury, stress and everyday activities can cause muscles to shorten and become imbalanced. Robotic Precision Therapy helps to correct these imbalances, resulting in reduced pain and greater mobility.
What to Expect at RPT Clinic?
A session at RPT Clinic will consist of reviewing your medical history and taking some readings of your general biomechanics. We then test to see which muscles are inhibiting you, it may be one or several. After we pinpoint your specific problem, we use the RX2600 Therapeutic Robot that administers gentle pressure in intervals to a specific area of a muscle, which relaxes and lengthens the muscle fibers, resulting in reduced pain and greater mobility.

Dr. Maureen Creal
“I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and a friend told me about RPT. I left after my first treatment with immediate relief in my neck and hips. The relief was so unexpected and welcomed, so I had my husband try RPT for his back pain associated with degenerative discs and golf injuries. He was able to play golf without the constant pain in his back and elbow.”
“RPT was life changing for me! I could barely walk, was in constant pain and scheduled for hip surgery. I canceled the surgery after just 3 visits and have been playing golf and tennis pain-free ever since.”
