Functional Change in Shoulder Case
What to Expect from Active Release Techniques®
The Assessment for Treatment1: Logical assessment based upon your history, function and tissue texture and tension.
2: Elite skills in the ability to feel and indentify the dysfunciton of specific muscle, nerves or fascia.
3: Results that are immediate and obvious.
Formula For Success:
1 Listen carefully
2 Functional and palpation assessment to identify dysfunction. (You can't treat what you can't feel.)
3 Targeted ART Treatment
4 Test function for immediate Results
5 Repeat as necessary
The Active Release Treatment
Once a treatment plan has been concluded Dave will use his hands to restore motion of restricted tissue by softly contacting the specific "spot" as you provide the precise motion for the treatment.
Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
A fitness program may be designed to achieve your personal goals and to avoid future injury.
- Patients can expect a minimum of a 20% decrease in pain symptoms or increase of ROM at the first 30 minutes of examination and treatment.
- ART® locates and treats the root cause of the problem.
- Many soft tissues problems can be resolved in 2 to 6 treatments.
- Expect functional biomechanical analysis and treatment of the problems with the problems kinetic chain.
- ART® brings permanent resolution to conditions that have been considered untreatable.
- The patient is educated with strech and or strengthening strategies to stop the condition from returning.
- Physicians can expect detailed reports of patient progress. Reports include: initial evaluation, examination, impression and treatment plan.
- Dave refers back to your referring physician or chiropractors office upon completion of the treatment plan so your physician maintains control of your care.
Functional assessment and video recording of athletic activities and patient motion may be utilized to analyze your biomechanics to evaluate weakness or restrictive motion.
Enhancement of Sports PerformanceART® practitioners perform a biomechanical analysis of athletes to determine where the restrictions and/or adhesions are located along the entire kinetic chain. ART treatments are specific and based upon the individual needs of each athlete. It is not a cookbook approach. We find specific tissues that are restricted and physically work them back to its normal texture, tension, and length by using various protocols.. It is not uncommon, after only a few sessions, to see a considerable improvement in the athlete’s best personal performance
Biomechanical analysis identifies weakness or restrictive motion by studying your motion.
ART® can help improve performance in any sport, from skiing, weight lifting, football, to running, cycling, golf, and swimming. Many competitive athletes suffer from a broad range of repetitive strain and stress related injuries, which can have tremendous impact on the time and effort required to perform an activity.
