Over time, your body just isn’t going to function as it once did. There are many different reasons why pain occurs in the body, and it’s important to your health and overall well-being to find the source of the problem quickly and deal with it.

Injuries causing pain can occur through repetitive activities you have engaged in in the past during work, sports, exercise or other activities. Other injuries can occur from improper posture or even the way you sleep. If you need help with relieving pain associated with these types of injuries and conditions, you should know about ART (Active Release Technique.)


Pain Management with Active Release Technique

ART has provided relief and restored a normal range of motion for arthritis suffers, shortened the recovery time of major muscle injuries, improved strength and endurance in ametuer athletes and has been a long-lasting solution to adhered muscles and ligaments. The active release technique eliminates the pain commonly felt when performing various activities without the need for pain medication (most of which simply mask the pain symptoms temporarily and thus can be ineffective or dangerous as a long-term pain management solution). The Body Mechanic is one of the few practices that offer Active Release Technique in Santa Rosa, CA.

The Effectiveness of the Active Release Technique

ART focuses on breaking up unhealthy tissue that adheres to nerves which is often the main culprit of both dull and severe pain. The active release technique literally “breaks up” this inflamed tissue with a combination of soft tissue massage and directed movement of the muscles involved. For most people who visit me for ART (active release technique) in Santa Rosa, the release of pain through activity has been the most effective resolution they have ever experienced.


Immediate Results with Less Pain

There are several noticeable changes that you’ll experience when you leave your active release technique appointment. Regular and repeat clients alike regularly report back to me that they experience immediate results, including improved mechanical function, reduced pain and a lessened (or no) need for medication.


Maintaining Muscular Health

You get regular maintenance for things you want to have endure and/or perform well, such as your car, your house, or your garden. Therefore, it only makes sense that regular maintenance of  your body should be at the top of this list as well. With regular maintenance from the Body Mechanic, including active release technique sessions, you can help achieve better muscle and joint function, reduced pain, and better overall health.
