Is Active Release Technique Right For You?
There are many treatment options available to you when you're suffering from pain. Active Release Technique is a great adjunct to general chiropractic care and massage therapy that can provide more targeted treatment and speed up the healing process.
Active Release Technique 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.
ART is 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 Injury Clinics can provide a non-invasive, medication-free solution to migraines by finding the source of the pain, not just treating the symptom.
While massage is a great therapeutic treatment for muscle pain and injury, Active Release Technique provides a more targeted approach. Unlike a traditional massage, we'll ask you to use your muscles to provide tension throughout the ART process.
The short answer is no! 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.
