Pain Relief With Active Release Technique in Rockland County

Overused and strained muscles and other soft tissues can be caused by a number of different things. The most common include:

  • Acute injuries, such as pulls, strains, and tears in accidents. These are injuries that come on suddenly, like whiplash or sports injuries.
  • The accumulation of small tears in the tissue over time, such as with repetitive strain injuries. Tennis Elbow and shoulder injuries fall into this category.

Your body produces scar tissue in the affected areas, and the scar tissue tangles up the surrounding tissues, keeping them from moving as freely as they were made to do. The longer an acute or chronic injury goes untreated, the more scar tissue builds up, which can shorten muscles over time, and trap nerves. As a result, you may experience things like reduced range of motion, less strength in the affected area, and pain in the affected area. You might also feel tingling and numbness if a nerve is trapped under scar tissue.

When you get the Active Release Technique, you can experience dramatic relief of all kinds of pain and other symptoms of your injury. Dr. Askenas will use his hands to evaluate the state of your affected soft tissues, such as their texture, tightness, and the way they move. Any abnormal tissues discovered are treated by combining extremely directed tension with specific movements from the patient. There are more than five hundred protocols a chiropractor can choose from with the Active Release Technique. 

Because there are so many different movements the Active Release Technique is always a treatment customized for each individual patient. No patient is going to need all of the moves. This technique is a powerful, effective method of relieving pain that takes individual situations into consideration to get the best results.
