Active Release Technique Services
We have the know-how you need.
Active Release Technique is a style of massage that practices manual therapy for the recovery of soft tissue function that involves the removal of scar tissue. Scar tissue can cause chronic pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, and muscle dysfunction. Active Release Therapy is known to, but not limited to, treating chronic pain of carpal tunnel, achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, and lower back pain. The removal of scar tissue will increase your joint mobilization, range of motion, increase blood flow, and even clear chronic pain symptoms. Active Release Technique is proven to prevent flare ups and reduce severity of chronic pain symptoms and in most cases, completely cure chronic pain from patients. Active Release Technique has many other uses such as giving deep tissue massages, relieving muscle tension, preventing injuries, maximizing a work out, and at the same time, it feels just as good as a massage. Our specialist, Clinton Muhammad, will not only make you feel good; he will maximize your body through the combination of Active Release Techniques, Propioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, and Muscle Energy Techniques.
ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY
Active Release Technique is a therapeutic stretching technique used to promote muscle and joint movement in the presence of muscle adhesions (knots) and scar tissue build-up. Treatment involves applying hand pressure to affected areas in order to break up tissue adhesions and released restrained nerves and blood vessels.
PROPIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION
Propioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation offers rehabilitative stretching techniques that improve basic motor skills and range of motion. PNF focuses primarily on muscle groups that enable horizontal or diagonal bodily movement. By shortening the opposing muscle and lengthening the target muscle, a client then uses an isometric contraction on the target muscle to promote a deep stretch.
MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUES
Muscle Energy Techniques, provide rehabilitative stretching techniques targeted to combat limited range of motion caused by muscle rigidity and hyper-/hypo-tonicity. Additionally, METs are designed to rehabilitate clients suffering from inter-neuronal injuries. Using targeted muscle inhibition, stretches are performed on the affected area – resulting in an increased range of motion.
