What is Spinal Manipulation? 

Chiropractic manipulation is primarily used as an alternative to traditional medicine for muscles, joints, bones and connective tissue. Most chiropractors support soft tissue rehabilitation such as massage therapy to aid in the restoration of proper range of motion, function and prevention of injury with a main focus on the spine.

What is Active Release Technique (ART)?

ART is a soft tissue mobilization technique that treats overused muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It can be used to break up scar tissue (adhesions), helps prevent injury, improve range of motion, promote flexibility, lower pain levels and improve recovery time in athletes.
