Active Release Technique Greensboro
Active Release Technique uses a combination of manipulation and movement to effectively treat soft tissue damages and problems that involve muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.
During an ART session, the chiropractor directs tension on a body part while the patient follows instructions for movement. Intense pain is an infrequent response to this treatment. However, after a treatment session, the patient may feel some soreness around the tissue. This is normal since ART is designed to serve three purposes: to restore motion of all soft tissues, to release entrapped nerves; and, to re-establish the optimal texture, function, and resilience of soft tissues.
The regular ART sessions that follow after the initial consultation usually take about 15 minutes. The first session takes longer due to the assessments that help determine whether this treatment method is for the patient. Assessments include an overview of the patient’s health history, symptoms, and lifestyle. These are followed by additional tests to diagnose the cause of your immobility and pain.
The assessments during the initial consultation are critical. ART is not an intervention that can be done on everyone. Good candidates for ART are patients diagnosed with the following conditions: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Sciatic Nerve Pain, Arthritis, Shin Splints, Nerve Entrapment Syndrome, and many more.
