Chiropractic care offers many specializations. A wide variety of treatment techniques are strategically incorporated for each unique care challenge. One of the techniques, Active Release Technique, or (ART) , is the subject of today’s discussion.

ART is a very common chiropractic treatment for pro and amateur athletes alike. ART treatment is used by chiropractors to manually evaluate the tightness, flexibility and texture of the patient’s ligaments, fascia, muscles, and tendons. One specific application involves treating the bottom of the foot and designed to provide relief to patients dealing with Plantar Fasciitis. If you experience pain in your heel or the bottom of your foot with walking, prolonged standing or when first getting out of bed in the morning, you might be suffering from Plantar Fasciitis.

When elbow pain develops, it will result in pain in the arm and hand, which affects the enjoyment and quality of life both at work and at home. If you are bothered with common activities like lifting, grasping, and typing, ART is routinely executed to combat elbow problems and helping elbow pain sufferers get back to their normal activities. ART is used for ailments effecting the knee as well.

ART allows the chiropractors to identify a correct unique musculoskeletal injury affecting patients by releasing adhesions and dissolving scar tissue. It has proven to be an effective, rapid method for alleviating the pain and soreness of numerous soft tissue injuries. For those people who are suffering from muscle overuse or other musculoskeletal injuries, call your chiropractic clinic because they will listen and care for you.
