Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.) in Kennewick and Pasco
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a massage therapy technique that helps treat muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve, and other soft tissue problems. However, it is not like a typical massage.
ART works by targeting injury and scar tissue in the muscles in order to restore them to their proper function. This technique alleviates the compression on the surrounding blood vessels and tissues that comes with inflammation and injury, improving the muscle function and relieving pain.
Drs. Jorgensen and Gilbert are both certified in Active Release Techniques and have helped thousands of patients in the Tri-Cities area get relief from debilitating pain. Our chiropractic team uses ART as part of a customized treatment plan for back and shoulder pain, work-related injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries like shin splints.
This revolutionary technique can help permanently resolve conditions that arise as a result of overused muscles. Our chiropractic team has had enormous success using Active Release Technique in treating Ironman athletes and people with repetitive motion injuries.
ART is also a useful method in migraine treatment. People with migraines generally take a lot of over the counter and/or prescription medication in order to manage their migraine pain. Over time, taking too much headache medication can do serious damage to your liver and kidneys. Many people do not realize that an ART-certified chiropractor like the ones at Northwest Spinal Rehab can provide a non-invasive, medication-free solution to migraines by finding the source of the pain, not just treating the symptom.
Regardless of what kind of pain brings you to our office, our chiropractors will be able to help reduce your pain and restore your function so you can get back to living a full life. When you call to schedule your appointment, ask if Active Release Techniques may be right for you.
