In the areas where you have pain you will often find inflammation, edema, muscle guarding, increased electrical activity, decreased blood flow and soft tissue adhesions.

Integrative Dry Needling is a manual therapy technique using a single use, solid, monofilament needle that is inserted into the skin and underlying muscle with the purpose of reducing muscle tightness, improving blood flow, reducing inflammation and ultimately to reduce pain.

Active Release Technique (ART)

Whenever we have any type of “injury” to a muscle or tendon, adhesions form to bind the injured tissues together. These adhesions act like a strong glue and leads to tightness and weakness of soft tissues.

Active release technique is a soft tissue method that focuses on breaking up the adhesions by locating specific areas of tightness and applying tension combined with active and passive stretching movements. The goal of ART is to restore normal mobility and “glide” between muscle tissue and nerves. Some of the problems most commonly relieved through ART treatments include:

-Shoulder impingement/pain/tightness

-Tennis elbow/golfers elbow

-Carpal tunnel syndrome
