Active Release Technique Benefits

Since being developed in 1948 by Dr. Micheal Leahy, Active Release Technique (ART) has been a popular treatment method for relieving joint stress as well as damaged and tight muscles. This technique eliminates the scar tissues from soft tissue injuries, impinging on the local nerves. ART can also treat lower back pain, neck pain, bursitis, tennis elbow, shin splints, and various other conditions. If you are interested in learning more about how ART can benefit you, our team is here to help. At Preferred Chiropractic, we offer ART combined with chiropractic care for patients in and around the Palm Beach Gardens area.


Reduce Chronic Lower Back Pain

Most people seek ART to help eliminate lower back pain. Unfortunately, more than 50 percent of all adults experience back pain at some point in any given year, and 80 percent of the US population suffers back pain at some point in their lives. Luckily, ART can help relieve pain, restore mobility and functionality by clearing the scar tissue that compresses the nerves and causes pain.

Improve Flexibility

If you have had an injury around your shoulders or legs, the scarring could cause tightening of the muscles around the affected area. ART uses manual manipulation to stretch and realign collagen scar adhesions. The realignment helps the collagen cells to go back to their original formation and remove the scar tissue. Once the scar tissue is gone, your muscles and joints can relax, which improves flexibility. A few visits to our chiropractor can help improve your health and overall well-being without any medication or surgery.

Help Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition associated with numbness, weakness, pain, and tingling in the hand and wrist. This occurs when the median nerve is put under too much pressure. A Journal of Chiropractic Medicine study found that ART can be a fast and effective method for treating carpal tunnel syndrome. With just a  few visits to our chiropractor, you will experience a significant reduction in the severity of your symptoms and increased mobility and function.

Provides Peace of Mind

Dealing with an internal scar after healing a traumatic, athletic, or accidental injury can take a toll on your mental and physical health. While our chiropractor can help you with a few pain-relieving therapeutic tips and exercises, the pain might not go away completely until the scar tissue heals completely. ART treatments are designed to eliminate pain effectively and quickly.
