WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Feb. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- California chiropractic clinic Active Body Chiro-Care is making ART (Active Release Technique) available to clients in West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Century City and South Bay. This technique is known for its ability to treat injuries at the source and non-invasively reduce scar tissue that can cause pain, chronic stiffness and a lack of mobility.
The Active Release Technique involves soft tissue massage of the muscles as well as the tendons and nerves. It is most effective on conditions caused by overuse, which can create a growing mass of scar tissue in the area. Conditions that can be effectively treated with ACT include knee injuries, tennis elbow, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica. Active Release Technique effectively loosens the accumulated scar tissue from muscles and tendons, relieving tension so that the injury can fully heal.
The doctors at Active Body Chiro-Care begin sessions with a comprehensive examination of the affected area. If Active Release Technique is appropriate for the injury, doctors will closely evaluate the muscles, ligaments, nerves and tendons for sensations of tightness and motion as well as texture. Specific patient movements are then combined with precision application of directed tension to gently break up scar tissue so that deep healing can begin.
Active Release Technique is far from a “one size fits all” type of treatment. It features a repertoire of over 500 different moves that can be used specifically for each patient’s injury type and scar tissue severity. It is considered an artisan chiropractic treatment that combines the care and skill of the chiropractor to address injury at the root in a non-invasive but highly effective way. Most clients who receive an ACT treatment experience relief quite rapidly. About 90 percent of patients also receive pain management benefits from the treatment.
Dr. James Hogan adds, “At Active Body Chiro-Care, clients aren’t just regarded as their symptoms or pain. We take a holistic approach to healing and look for causes and underlying issues to address instead of just symptoms. The whole person is considered, and treatment may include advice related to diet, lifestyle and other recommended therapeutic methods to complement ACT. Each client is seen in terms of the whole person, and the body is treated as an elegant system with parts that can work together seamlessly.”
