WHAT IS

Scar tissue?

Active Release Technique®, or ART®, is a hands-on muscle treatment used to identify and treat soft tissue injuries that can occur from trauma or repetitive over use. Active Release treats scar tissue in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves without injuring the surrounding soft tissue. Active Release maintains the health of the soft tissue surrounding the joints ensuring proper function of both the soft tissues and the joints.

 

 

Scar tissue is the dense, weak connective tissue which forms a scar; it can be found on any tissue on the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. This fibrous material binds itself to damaged soft tissue fibers in an effort to draw the damaged fibers back together and can impede the function of surrounding muscles and proper joint motion. This can cause muscle tension and nerve entrapment, leading to a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, pain, or numbness.

 

Scar tissue occurs from:

  • Acute conditions (pulls, tears, strains, etc.)
  • Repetitive movements
  • Hypoxia (tissue not getting enough oxygen)

Claire

I came to Active Care Chiropractic because I was having some problems with my back and neck and it was starting to effect my dancing. Many people at my dance studio, City Ballet,  recommended Active Care Chiropractic so I went and had x-rays on my back and neck and it turns out that I had a minor case of scoliosis.

 

Dr. Bradburn helped me and taught me different exercises to do at home and he also put me on a stim device that pulsated my neck and back helping my tissues to heal. The staff is so nice and sweet and I know whenever I need to recommend a chiropractor I will strongly suggest  Dr. Bradburn because he has helped me so much and I am forever so grateful.
