Northfield, OH, September 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Ohio Sports Chiropractic now provides Active Release Technique (ART), a hands-on treatment method to address problems in the soft tissues of the body. ART is a new technique that is specifically designed to locate and treat scar tissue adhesions that accumulate in muscles and surrounding soft tissues from acute and repetitive injuries.
“We’re excited to offer this fast and versatile treatment to those with pain from injuries,” said Dr. Leo Kormanik II, owner of Ohio Sports Chiropractic. “Through the use of active release techniques, ART can treat scar tissue and often times eliminate the necessity for surgery. We’ve even seen improvements in as little as four to six treatments. It is even beneficial to several different ailments and sport injuries.”
ART practitioners can reinstate normal tissue flexibility and movement. This technique also restores balance and stability to the injured area and to the entire kinetic chain. ART ensures all contributing factors and dysfunctional soft issues are addressed before they can develop pain.
“One of the best things about ART is how fast it can get results,” said Dr. Kormanik. “In our experience, many injuries respond very well to ART treatment, especially when combined with the appropriate home stretching and strengthening exercises.”
Dr. Kormanik first shortens the muscle, tendon or ligament. He applies a specific pressure to the injury with his hands, while the patient stretches and lengthens the tissues. He then assesses the texture and tension of the muscle to determine the health of the tissue and if it requires more treatment. Dr. Kormanik is also able to modify the amount and direction of tension based on scar tissue adhesion and assess the health of the entire area.
ART helps several sport related injuries like running injuries, tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder, and golf injuries. It treats and alleviates pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves, back pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, and knee problems.
Athletes or anyone with pain from an injury can receive ART from Dr. Kormanik. Ohio Sports Chiropractic hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. For more information on ART, contact Ohio Sports Chiropractic at 330-908-0203.
