Active Release Techniques at Lake View Chiropractic: Unlock Your Movement in Chicago, IL

At Lake View Chiropractic, nestled in the vibrant city of Chicago, we are excited to offer Active Release Techniques (ART) as a core component of our chiropractic services. ART is a state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement-based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.

What are Active Release Techniques (ART)?

Active Release Techniques is a cutting-edge approach to healing and pain relief, uniquely designed to identify, isolate, and target affected areas, thereby reducing pain and improving function. Through a combination of precise pressure and specific patient movements, ART treats your body’s soft tissue by breaking up adhesions, which can cause pain, inflammation, and restricted movement.

The Benefits of Active Release Techniques

  • Targeted Pain Relief: Directly addresses the underlying causes of pain and discomfort.
  • Improved Flexibility and Mobility: Enhances the range of motion by breaking up scar tissue.
  • Quick Results: Many patients experience significant improvement after just a few treatments.
  • Versatility: Effective for athletes, office workers, and everyone in between.

Our Approach to Active Release Techniques

Personalized Treatment Plans: Each patient receives a custom-tailored ART session based on their specific condition and wellness objectives.

Holistic Health Focus: We combine ART with other therapeutic methods and lifestyle adjustments to promote overall well-being and prevent future injuries.
