Active Release Technique Can Enhance Your Health and Wellness

Posted by on May 5, 2019 in Health, Prevention with 0 Comments

When you just start exercising after a long stretch of sedentary lifestyle you might be surprised to discover that you’ve lost much of your flexibility. Regular overuse of certain muscles creates fatigue and what the ART treatment’s creator Michael Leah terms as “Scar Tissue”. These are tissues that have been overworked for long hours at a stretch and have become deeply fatigued, and cause problems in the long term.

This is where the ART practitioners come in. A chiropractor who’s certified in Active Release Technique can help you recover from the long sedentary lifestyle that we live. When you’ve been living in a 9 to 5 job for a long time, these scar tissues can overwhelm you, and they often compound to form chronic pain symptoms.

Active Release Technique was pioneered in the 80s to help sportspersons recover from chronic pain injuries. Over the years, it has been personalized and suited to every single person who walks in. So, don’t worry if you’re not into running, ART can help you too. Here are some points about how ART can help:

1. Personalized care

Everyone treats their muscles differently. There are people who go for workouts daily, there are people who work in places where they face the computer screen for 8 hours straight, there are people who do both. The entire health and problems are dependent on these differences. How you deal with your pain and how you need to heal yourselves depends on these things. Chiropractors who’re trained in ART take time to assess your body personally so that they know exactly what is wrong with you, and how they can heal you. They find out the exact positions of your scar tissue and find the spaces which need most care when dealing with it.

One of the primary goals of your first appointment would be to test the limits of your movements and the problems with your posture to determine exactly how to take care of your body.

2. Stretching and revascularization

When you stretch your muscles after a long workout, it releases blood into parts of the muscles so that you can gain movement and heal faster. Healing this way enhances your muscles movements and help you perform perfectly in the workout on the very next day. This is something we need when we work too. The human body is optimized to be kept moving, so, when a person adopts a mostly sedentary lifestyle, there are entire muscle groups that are constricted. In fact, it has been shown that entire parts of muscles could be lacking energy when you work continuously for hours without stretching. The corrections that chiropractors trained in ART do is designed to make your blood flow to these constricted areas and heal them.

The revascularization is something that helps you get back into work with your usual vigor and fewer problems every time. The revascularizations also return your muscle fibers to the normal states allowing them to function optimally and allowing you to say goodbye to that pesky muscle pain.

3. Reducing the pressure on your body

Every time you tilt your head downwards you create a condition called “text shoulders”. This creates additional weight on your body muscles. Creating a posture where you can work and also serve your body better is a work that the chiropractor does. They help you hold yourselves up to more efficiently so that you can work faster and do more with less strain on your muscles. Another thing that the chiropractor would work on is how you respond to the stresses so, that you can have a holistic way of dealing with injuries when you start developing them again. Plus, once, these symptoms are dealt with, you can automatically work more efficiently since, your movements and health both would improve.
