When seeking relief from pain due to a
 number of different sources from back
 pain, headaches, carpel tunnel and shin
 splints to name but a few. You should
  p
 look for a chiropractor in Vancouver that
 specializes in Active Release Techniques
 (ART). The Active Release Technique is a
 specific massage technique that
 manipulates the soft tissues and is
 primarily used to treat issues with
 muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and
 fascia.
Developed by P. Michael Leahy, DC,
 CCSP.
 CCSP This powerful series of massage
 techniques are designed to break up
 adhesions or scar tissue that forms in the
 muscles when they are overused. When
 muscles are overused, they become
                        full range of
 shorter and lose their f            f
 motion which can affect the joints,
 nerves and can even decrease the blood
 supply to soft tissues resulting in pain
 and inhibited mobility.

 The ultimate goal is to break up the scar
 tissue within muscles and restore them
    full mobility while relieving the pain at
 to f
 the same time. The increase in blood flow
 combines with the relief of pressure on
 nerves can help bring substantial pain
 relief to patients. The full range of issues
 that ART addresses include;
Back Pain
Carpel Tunnel
Headaches
Plantar Fasciitis
Pl t F       iiti
Nerve entrapments
Sciatica
Shin Splints
Tendonitis
TMJ
This list also includes other soft tissue
 inflammations and disorder of the joints
 themselves. These issues are addressed
 by the chiropractor using ART with the
   y           p           g
 hands. Using specific pressure
 techniques, the chiropractor works to
 break up the f  fibrous adhesions and scar
 tissue with stretching motions that are
 generally aligned with the direction of the
 lymphatic flow. Occasionally, the
 opposite direction may be used as well.
The ART treatment is performed in four
 steps,
 steps the first three involve the
 chiropractor moving and stretching the
 muscles of the patient. But in the fourth
                  p
 step, the patient then will employ certain
 moves to help the chiropractor loosen
 and break up the adhesions within the
 muscle tissues. The involvement of the
 patients at this point helps maximize the
 results of the treatment.
The results of ART have been verified in
            circles

 Vanderbilt University in 2008 where
 significant relief from p
   g                     pain was observed
