From hamstring injuries, hip muscle tightness, foot pain, to lower back pain, and pull muscles, Dr. Todd P. Sullivan of NOVA Chiropractic & Wellness Center will be providing Active Release Techniques (ART) care to the runners at The George Washington Parkway Classic in Alexandria, VA.
Dr. Sullivan will be providing Active Release Techniques for the runners at The George Washinton Parkway Classic on April 25th, 2010. "With this race being so early into the season, we typically see more muscle strains and overuse injuries as the runners are just getting into their season," says Dr. Sullivan.
Active Release Technique is a state of the art patented soft tissue technique designed to fix the injuries that occur to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. ART can also be used to increase the athletes performance by loosening up tight muscles and preparing the athletes body for the race, because a tight muscle is a weaker muscle. This technique is great at healing injuries that occur from repetitive strain such as training for a running race.
