How can ART help a patient?

ART treatments are specifically designed to locate and treat scar tissue adhesions that accumulate in the muscles and surrounding soft tissues. Through and ART treatment the practitioner can help to: 

1) Breakup restrictive adhesions.

2) Reinstate normal tissue flexibility and movement. 

3) Restore flexibility, balance, and stability to the injured area and to the entire kinetic chain.


How does ART work?

During an ART treatment, tension is applied to affected muscles, ligaments, and tendons. As the tension is applied, the practitioner or an assistant will then move the affected area thus releasing tension and breaking up adhesions. This works to restore normal range of motion. This unique combination of direct pressure and specific guided movement patterns are the key to ART’s success in treating pain and injuries.

You may find that a nagging area of your body can be restored to its normal function in just a handful of treatments.

    Patient
  • I love this place! It doesn't matter what I come in with, they are able to help me and my entire family. I have 2 children, ages 5 and 7, and Dr. Jennifer Teasdale is absolutely a delight to deal with, and both my kids are excited to see her. There hasn't been a problem they haven't been able to help with. Highly recommend this place!

    Patient
  • I have been seeing Dr, Finan for Chiropractic Treatment and Michelle for Physiotherapy for over 10 years with AST. They are always kind and informative, they really care about your health and well-being and they do whatever it takes to get you there. Both are so patient and they never address your symptoms without some education to go along with why you might feel the way to do and what you can do to help the process.
