Active Release Therapy

At Urban Chiropractic, we prioritize the holistic well-being of our patients. Understanding that every individual requires a unique approach to their health, we integrate various therapeutic techniques in our practice. One such innovative method we employ is Active Release Therapy (ART), a soft tissue treatment that has demonstrated a profound effect on patients suffering from various muscle and joint issues.

Active Release Therapy is a specialized technique that addresses problems with your body’s soft tissues. It is essentially a hybrid treatment, involving both manipulation and movement, leading to a comprehensive approach to body wellness. At Urban Chiropractic, we are adept in the application of ART, incorporating it into our routine practice to provide a comprehensive, customized healthcare experience.

When it comes to the human body, soft tissues often bear the brunt of physical exertion, tension, and stress. These tissues can develop adhesions – dense collections of scar tissue – that limit flexibility and cause pain and stiffness. ART is designed to target these adhesions, breaking them down to restore your mobility and reduce discomfort. We use our hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, and then apply precise directed pressure while you perform specific movements. This combination not only breaks up adhesions but also helps improve blood flow, facilitating faster healing and better function.

Are you wondering if you might benefit from Active Release Therapy? A few tell-tale signs indicate the accumulation of scar tissue and the potential need for this unique therapy. If you are experiencing stiffness in your neck, elbow, hands, knees, or back, you might have an underlying issue that ART can address. Similarly, increased pain during exercise, sharp pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel, pain, numbness, and tingling in your fingers could be symptomatic of adhesions in your soft tissues.

Further, reduced flexibility and a limited range of motion, along with decreased strength, might suggest issues that ART can successfully target. Additionally, if your joints are inflamed, this therapy might provide you with much-needed relief. At Urban Chiropractic, we thoroughly assess your condition, ensuring that we employ the most suitable technique to address your specific needs.

We are not just well-versed in ART. We are also passionate about your overall well-being. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that you not only recover from your ailments but also understand the root cause of your symptoms, empowering you to take control of your health. By choosing Urban Chiropractic, you’re choosing a patient-centered approach, where your health and wellness are our primary concern.
