Dr. Patti, ART Chiropractor in Bluffton, SC
Active release techniques (ART®) is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based technique that treats both acute and chronic conditions. It treats problems that occur in muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Most soft tissue injuries are due to overuse. Overused muscles can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue that binds up and ties down tissues that should move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness and weakness.
Bluffton Chiropractor, Dr. Patricia Zientek provides ART® to her patients to address pain and problems that arise from overused muscles quickly and effectively. Dr. Patti is uniquely proficient in ART® as both a provider and instructor. Only a credentialed ART® provider can determine whether ART® might prove beneficial for a patient’s condition.
Pain and tightness is usually the result of overused muscles in many patients. Overuse contributes to scar tissue formation, pulls, strains, tears and inflammation. ART® targets connective tissues, major muscle groups, ligaments and tendons. This natural treatment restores normal mobility between muscular tissue and nerves. The patient performs active motion of a body part while Dr. Patti applies a specific tension at the site of tissue dysfunction. The goal of this is to restore the gliding mechanics between adjacent structures back to normal, release any entrapped nerves and restore the muscle’s elasticity and contractility back to normal.
Conditions normally treated with ART® are common yet very diverse. Some of these conditions are the following:
- Golfers elbow
- Tennis elbow
- Spinal pain and dysfunction
- Inflammation of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, foot, ankle, knee or hip
- Sprains and strains from overuse
- Pulls and tears
- Soft tissue injury or inflammation
- Sports injuries
- Recurring sprains and strains of the muscles and ligaments
- Carpal tunnel
- Peripheral nerve entrapment
