    Active Release Techniques (ART®)

  • Also known as ART, is a patented technique that focuses on issues with soft tissues including muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. ART combines movement based massage with focused stretching. In effort to restore proper function, the provider will contact and apply pressure to the muscle or tissue in which they wish to treat. They will then instruct the patient to move through a given range of motion in order to properly stretch the given tissue. A few common conditions that respond well to ART include headaches, back pain, sciatica, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer’s elbow, and tennis elbow.
  • Chiropractic Manipulation

  • A manual procedure utilized by doctors of chiropractic to improve or restore joint motion. According to the American Chiropractic Association, “The chiropractic physician typically uses his or her hands–or an instrument–to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. This often helps resolve joint inflammation and reduces the patient’s pain. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.”
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation

  • Commonly referred to as EMS or “Stim.” EMS utilizes a low level electric current to help treat muscular spasms and strains. The low level current causes a mild contraction of the muscle. This contraction produces a massaging effect over the affected area which allows the muscles to relax. In addition, the contraction causes blood flow to increase to the region being treated. This increased blood flow means that the amount of oxygen getting to the tissues will also increase which helps to stimulate the healing process. Thus relaxing the strained muscles and promoting soft tissue healing.
  • Flexion Distraction / Mechanical Traction

  • Flexion Distraction therapy is a technique that some chiropractors utilize to treat the lumbar spine. This therapy requires a specific type of table that allows the doctor to gently move the patient in order to take pressure off of the spinal nerves. It can be useful in treating lumbar disc injuries, sciatica, scoliosis, and spinal stenosis. It is also a good option for patients who do not tolerate manual chiropractic manipulation.
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation

  • A type of treatment that uses specifically designed metal tools to address soft tissue injury. It helps to effectively break up scar tissue and release myofascial adhesions.
  • Ultrasound

  • Ultrasound is a form of physiotherapy that uses sound waves to create tiny vibrations. These vibrations penetrate muscles and other tissues causing a warming effect. This in turn promotes the relaxation of the tissues and helps to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Hot / Cold Therapy

  • Hot packs are used to achieve vasodilation which in turn increases the amount of oxygen that can get to the area. This allows the muscle to relax and promotes healing. Cold packs are utilized in order to cause vasoconstriction which can help reduce the buildup of inflammation and reduce swelling.
  • Rehabilitation

  • Helpful stretches and exercises will be demonstrated on a patient to patient basis in order to speed up healing and promote recovery.
