Chiropractic & ART
WHY USE CHIROPRACTIC?
The chiropractors at PhysioPlus Health Group provide the highest quality of care for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of sports and recreational injuries, as well as the aches and pains of everyday life. They combine a variety of hands-on treatment techniques to help reduce pain, and improve mobility and increase function to help get you back to doing the activities you love doing most.
Our chiropractors perform a thorough physical exam to determine the underlying reason for your pain or problem. Once a diagnosis is established, they develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. The treatment can include gentle mobilization or manipulation, soft tissue release techniques such as ART or massage, acupuncture, and modalities such as LASER and IFC. As your pain resolves, they will begin to introduce rehabilitation exercises to facilitate recovery, and then gradually progress you to therapeutic exercises that will help prevent re-injury, improve function and performance.
Our chiropractors keep up-to date with continuing education courses and current research so they develop advanced clinical skills, and offer the most current and effective treatment options to their patients.
WHAT IS ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY OR ART®?
ART®, is a hands-on technique used to break up scar tissue or adhesions in inflamed muscles, tendons and nerves resulting from injury, over use and poor posture. It is used to help restore range of motion, improve mobility and decrease pain. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the tightness and movement of muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by applying precisely directed pressure during very specific patient movements.
