‘Non-popping’ methods are different from most chiropractic therapies

Traditional chiropractic care isn’t always the most effective means of relieving the pain, numbness and tingling that are common symptoms of repetitive stress injuries. In fact, some of our patients would rather avoid the popping and cracking associated with traditional chiropractic care completely.

Either way, this is where an advanced form of therapy called Active Release Technique® (ART®, for short) can be the ideal answer. ART® is considered the gold standard in soft tissue treatment, and both Dr. Matt Gallagher and Dr. Matt Herber are full-body certified to administer this patented therapy.

ART® features more than 500 protocols to repair scar tissue that often forms as a result of repetitive motion in muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments and fascia. ART® might be right for you if you are dealing with issues such as:

Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Headaches
  • Low back pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Sciatica 

The term Active Release Technique® describes the science behind why these protocols are so effective. ART® breaks up the adhesions that may be restricting the areas causing your pain by first shortening the structure we’re treating, and then actively lengthening it while delivering a very specific, tension-type contact.

Most of our patients report an almost immediate improvement in their discomfort level, with the best results occurring after only a handful of treatment sessions.

Who benefits from ART® treatments?

The short answer is virtually everybody. Whether you sit at a desk all day or are active in your work setting, chances are you perform some type of repetitive motion. Amateur athletes, weekend warriors, all the way up to professional athletes also experience relief through ART® treatments.

We even use ART® to help people whose muscle tightness might originate from how they sleep, as well as women who recently completed their pregnancies, since that journey can strain multiple parts of the body.

Listen to your body. Addressing issues that are causing pain or discomfort before they turn into chronic challenges is the best way to enjoy the quality of life you deserve.
