Active Release Technique Therapy from Your in Chiropractor in Newark, OH
Among athletes and others who enjoy playing sports, soft tissue injuries are common. Individuals with these injuries in our Newark, OH area can look forward to chiropractic care that avoids medication or surgery. One important technique our Bafford Spine and Nutrition chiropractor uses is the active release technique or ART.
What is ART?
The active release technique is the result of work with injured athletes more than three decades ago. ART specifically addresses soft-tissue issues such as adhesions, swelling, and fibrosis caused by trauma. This type of massage therapy targets muscles, nerves, tendons, fascia, and ligaments to relieve muscular weakness, tingling or burning sensations, numbness, and aching.
This chiropractic care is particularly useful for the overuse of muscles and other soft tissues that results in tears or failure to receive enough oxygen. Conditions it resolves include:
- Knee problems
- Back pain
- Tennis elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Shoulder pain
- Shin splints
- Plantar fasciitis
Since this technique consists of more than 500 different moves, our doctor will customize the therapy for each individual.
What to Expect from Our Practice
The path to wellness for each Bafford Spine and Nutrition patient begins with a comprehensive physical exam and a health history assessment. After diagnosing the cause of the individual’s discomfort, our chiropractor creates a customized treatment plan that considers the problem, the patient’s age, lifestyle, and other factors.
During an ART session, our doctor applies compression and other kinds of force using manual therapy. The objective is restoring motion to the soft tissues that have been injured.
This chiropractic care applies deep tension at each point where the individual has tenderness while moving the injured site to an extended position. The result is a sliding motion of nerves, muscles, and other tissues underneath the point of contact.
Our doctor notes that many patients have found it possible to live pain-free lives thanks to a combination of ART and other chiropractic techniques.
