Dr. Bobby Pritchett at Millennium Chiropractic is an Active Release Techniques® (ART®) Certified Provider. ART is a non-invasive treatment for soft-tissue disorders.
ART is used to diagnose and treat strains, sprains, and other musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal disorders affect your joints, bones, connective tissues, and muscles. They can cause pain and loss of function. Musculoskeletal disorders are the most common causes of chronic pain.
- carpal tunnel syndrome.
- rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
- bone fractures
ART combines specific kinds of touch with specific patient movements to create targeted theoretic effects. The goal is to reduce pain and improve function. Many patients experience dramatic improvement from the first treatment, and most problems are resolved within five appointments.
ART therapies are non-invasive and have no side effects or significant risks. There may be some discomfort during sessions, but the overall effect is of reducing pain and restoring function.
This technique has shown a high level of effectiveness for athletes, people who experience pain from repetitive motions at work, and those who are in pain following an injury. Micro-traumas to muscles and other soft tissues can lead to the development of scar tissue which can limit movement and cause pain.
