Is Your Chiropractor Using the Active Release Technique?

If you’re thinking about chiropractic care as just spinal manipulation, you’re missing out on the complex nature of chiropractic and the different techniques that are used by a variety of practitioners.

Active Release Technique (ART)

Overused muscles cause pulls and tears (or accumulation of small tears) that end up being deprived of oxygen. When this occurs, dense scar tissue in troubled spots arise, muscles become shorter and weaker, nerves get trapped and tension on the tendons increase. If you play sports or are just active, you?ll notice the limitations in your range of motion, increased pain and even loss of strength.

ART aims to treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves as well as resolving common conditions such as back and knee pain, tennis elbow, shin splits, sciatica, plantar fasciitis and more.

This is done by examining the texture, tightness and movement of the affected area. Specified treatment through ART cover over 500 specific moves.

There?s no reason to live with pain nor a reason to not get the treatment that will help resolved the issue, both in the short and long term. ART is an extremely effective technique designed specifically for these problems.
