When you are suffering from soft tissue pain, it can significantly impact your life. You can feel pain during every activity, from walking to folding your laundry. It can make you desperate for relief. Fortunately, you can find that relief at Dynamic Motion Chiropractic – your chiropractor in Winston-Salem. Dr. Moody uses therapies like the Active Release Technique to provide relief. Learn more about this treatment and how it can benefit you in the guide below.
What Is Active Release Therapy?
The Active Release Technique or ART is a therapy that combines movement and manipulation to break up scar tissue that often can’t be reached through other methods. It is typically used to address issues in the nerves, ligaments, muscles, and tendons and is effective in treating the following:
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Chronic neck and lower back pain
- Tension headaches
- Plantar fasciitis
- Muscle strains
- Tennis elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
How Does ART Help With Pain Management?
Active Release Therapy is beneficial for not only treating pain but also for addressing the root cause of that pain. When the root cause is addressed, pain begins to fade away.
ART also improves blood flow and the flow of healing nutrients to the damaged area, which further improves healing. Patients who have taken advantage of ART have reported less pain, as well as improved flexibility and greater range of motion. Although several methods can treat pain in the soft tissues, ART is known to be effective in fewer treatment sessions.
Active Release Therapy is even more beneficial when combined with other chiropractic methods, such as the activator technique. The activator technique provides a very controlled, low force, high-speed adjustment to a targeted area.
After our chiropractor has located the damaged area, combining adjustments through the activator method and ART can ensure that each patient receives the care they need. The combination of such treatments allows for precise attention to damaged, tense, or inflamed areas.
