Active Release Technique



If you have chronic low back pain, you are not alone. Up to 85% of adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Chiropractic care and Active Release Techniques provide excellent results with faster recovery times when compared to medications and other treatments.


PLANTAR Fasciitis

Plantar means “Foot”.  Fasciitis means “Inflammation”.  Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the fascia on the bottom of the foot. In many cases the fascia becomes irritated and inflamed by repetitive stress (over use) such as running or excessive time walking or standing.



It is often a common myth (even among doctors) that once a patient has surgery they can no longer see a chiropractor due to scar tissue created by surgery. Active Release is a great alternative for these patients and provides instant pain relief and increased range of motion.

Achilles TENDON

Achilles tendonitis is caused by chronic inflammation and overuse of the Achilles tendon commonly found in runners and other endurance athletes. Achilles Tendonitis typically presents in the lower region of the calf to the heel bone. Overuse and repetitive motion causes small tears in the tendon that leads to the buildup of scar tissue. Achilles tendonitis is easily resolved with Chiropractic Care and Active Release Technique.


Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a disorder in which the shoulder becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting the motion and causing chronic pain. This condition can result from a trauma/injury or happen spontaneously without cause. Chiropractic care and Active Release Technique have proven to be effective in treating frozen shoulder and offers patients a natural way to help the body heal itself.



IT band syndrome is caused by inflammation of the iliotibial band, a thick band of connective tissue that runs down the outside of the leg. The band functions along with other thigh muscles to provide stability to the outside of the knee joint. Runners, cyclists, and other endurance athletes are especially prone to developing IT band syndrome.

HIp Pain

Hip pain is a common problem caused by a wide variety of factors. It is often caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround the joint. However, the pain you feel in your hip may actually be a problem in your back, rather than the hip itself, as hip pain is most commonly caused by subluxation of the spine.
