San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2012
According to a report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 2011, over 116 million Americans have reported chronic pain in one or more parts of their body. Often times, people consider these afflictions as normal wear-and-tear, especially when pain is experienced in their back muscles. This pain can be caused by an adhesion in the fibrous tissue developed from a small tear in the muscle, tendon or ligament. These adhesions can be developed from acute injury (trauma), overuse (repetitive motion) and constant pressure or tension for extended periods of time, which can be correlated to poor posture. Active Release Technique is an effective way to ease this pain.
Active Release Technique is a therapeutic soft tissue technique that can help release and smooth out scar tissue and muscular adhesions developed from overuse through various muscle movements. As scar tissue develops in the affected area, it can impede on the function of surrounding muscles, which can cause muscle tension and nerve entrapment. This ultimately can lead to a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, pain or numbness. Active Release Technique is patented in order to maintain a high standard of doctors who practice it and to ensure the best possible care for patients. Medical practitioners specialized in Active Release Technique, such as Dr. Adam Jacobs, have attended workshops to learn 500 protocols to treat every muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia and nerve in the body to become fully certified in the technique. He is able to single out a specific muscle or tissue in the body and use the technique to reduce inflammation and smooth muscle tissue in the afflicted area to help ease the pain.
Although Active Release Technique has been proven to be extremely effective with professional athletes and dancers, it is beneficial for everyone. Whether you are a working professional or a busy mother with young children, a quick trip to SF Custom Chiropractic for Active Release Technique treatment can help you return to a pain-free and productive lifestyle.
To complement the Active Release Technique and maintain the health of the tissue, Dr. Adam Jacobs also combines the use of Chiropractic adjustments. This combination allows for maximum healing and injury prevention. The chiropractic adjustments ensure that the joints and spine are in proper alignment while the Active Release Technique maintains the health of the soft tissue surrounding the joints.
As one of the few doctors in the Bay Area who is fully certified in Active Release Technique, Dr. Jacobs hopes to spread awareness of this technique by offering a special promotion for this month. During the month of April, Dr. Jacobs is offering a free initial Active Release Technique treatment to the area of primary complaint for patients. This is a great opportunity to reduce muscle knots and become pain free.
