Tacoma Chiropractic Offers Active Release Technique

If you could prevent injury while improving the function of muscles and increasing mobility in your joints all at the same time, wouldn't you want to do it? This is actually more realistic than you might think, thanks to active release techniques offered by Tacoma Chiropractic Center. This type of therapy can be a form of preventive health care, and it can also improve your body function while helping you achieve optimum health.

What Is Active Release Techniques Tacoma?

Active release techniques are sometimes referred to as Active Release Therapy (ART) and can be offered as part of your chiropractic care. ART is a specialized type of technique that treats problems with certain parts of the body including the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.

Conditions Treated with ART Treatment

Some of the conditions ART can quickly and effectively treat include:

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Shin splints
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow

Many of these conditions are a result of muscles and other parts of the soft tissue that get overused. Not only does this cause pain in certain parts of the body, but overused muscles can also cause decreased range of motion and loss of physical strength. Not only does ART help treat these conditions, it can also help to prevent further injury. If you have been diagnosed with any of these conditions, or you have symptoms that include increased pain when exercising, inflammation in your joints, or numbness that indicate nerve damage, you will benefit from ART.

Who is a Good Candidate for ART Treatment?

While this technique is relatively simple and straightforward, ART is tailored to each individual patient and usually, depends on the severity of the injury and its location. This type of therapy is administered by the hands of an ART provider and some have stated it feels similar to getting a deep tissue massage.
