One of these services is called active release technique, and it has worked wonders for many of our patients. Continue reading to learn more about this technique and how it can benefit you.

How Does It Work 

The active release technique is a service that has been practiced by professionals for over 30 years. It is used to treat the soft tissue within your body through the use of manipulation and movement. By isolating the injured area, our therapists will look to break up any scar tissue present on the muscles and tendons. With the use of deep tissue massages and various exercises, blood flow to the affected area will be increased, resulting in the faster healing of your injury.

Body Parts Treated
