"A.R.T." is patented, state of the art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fascitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow a just a few of the many conditions that are resolved quickly and permanently with A.R.T. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they often result from injury to over-used muscles.
How do Overuse Injuries Occur?
Over-used muscles and other soft tissues change in three important ways:
- Acute injuries (pulls, tears, collisions, etc.)
- Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
- Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissue that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced ranges of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
What is an A.R.T. Treatment Like?
Every A.R.T. session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The A.R.T. provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatment protocols - over 500 of them- are unique to A.R.T. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. A.R.T is not a cookie-cutter approach.

Chiropractic, although often misunderstood, is about helping people live healthier, fuller lives. While typically thought of as "bone doctors", chiropractors actually focus on the nervous system, particularly the spine, as the key to a healthy and pain-free body. The basis of our work focuses on correcting joint restrictions (joints that have lack of movement) and improving the functioning of the entire nervous system.
In order to reduce pain and dramatically improve quality of life, chiropractors restore joint movement and re-establish proper biomechanics throughout the body. Once the correct mechanics have been restored, the body has the ability to function optimally. Chiropractic work is widely researched, practiced, and respected, and has been shown to help a wide range of ailments.
