What does Active Muscle Release do?

During active muscle release, a chiropractor focuses on identifying and addressing areas of muscular tightness, adhesions, and imbalances within the soft tissues. They utilize specific techniques such as stretching, deep tissue massage, and manual therapy to release tension and restore optimal muscle function. This targeted approach aims to enhance joint mobility, alleviate pain, and improve overall musculoskeletal health for the patient.

How often should you see a Physiotherapist?

Seeing an active muscle release practitioner depends on individual needs and the severity of the muscular issues. In general, a treatment plan may involve weekly sessions initially, gradually transitioning to bi-weekly or monthly visits as muscular function improves.

How does Active Muscle Release work?

Active muscle release is closely related to chiropractic care as it aims to alleviate tension and dysfunction in the soft tissues, complementing the overall goal of restoring musculoskeletal health. By targeting specific areas of muscular tightness and imbalance, active muscle release techniques can enhance the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments, promoting improved joint mobility and overall structural alignment. This combined approach can lead to comprehensive relief from musculoskeletal pain and discomfort, yielding more holistic and lasting results for patients.
