CORRECTIVE EXERCISES & STRETCHES

We offer Functional Movement Screens included with your initial appointment. FMS screens identify areas of weakness or inefficiency in movement patterns that may lead to injury. These screens help us to create a personalized rehab program for each of our patients. 

DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling is a popular therapy that uses acupuncture needles to release trigger points deep in muscles. Dry needling promotes healthy blood supply to muscles, decreases pain, and improves muscle function.

Active Release Technique® (ART) is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based therapy that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

How do overuse conditions occur?  

Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),

  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)

  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.

What is an ART treatment like?  

Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.
