ART sessions are usually most effective when paired with chiropractic manipulation in Calgary. Scar tissue is often present with repetitive injuries that prevent the soft tissue from moving correctly and healing properly. This can cause reduced range of motion and/or pain. If a nerve becomes involved, there may also be numbness, tingling, and/or weakness.


Understanding Active Release Technique in Calgary

The Treatment

When a problem is found, a specific protocol is chosen. A precise amount of pressure is applied aiding in the breakdown of the scar tissue. Most of these conditions occur due to one important commonality: over-usage. These are usually from:

  • Pulls, tears, collisions, etc. (Acute conditions)
  • Micro-trauma (Accumulation of small tears)
  • Not enough oxygen to the muscle/tendon (Hypoxia)

Dr. Aaron uses Active Release because it helps many muscle-related conditions resolve quickly. Call Chiropractic Center for Health today to schedule an appointment!
