How Does ART Help?
Muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue develop adhesions within and between them as a result of various injuries. Abnormal tissue can go unnoticed by an athlete or office worker and can lead into an injury. Early symptoms of damaged tissue include tightening and shortening of the muscle. This makes movements that used to be easy harder, for example, a stiffer golf swing rotation.
These adhesions cause the motion of muscles or joints to be altered, eventually resulting in a variety of symptoms including pain, weakness, numbness, tingling and a reduced range of motion. Depending on the type and severity of injury, between 2-6 visits (each lasting about 15 – 30 minutes) are required for the correction of soft tissue problems.
