Chiropractic Active Release Techniques in Kansas City
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue structures can become adhered to one another creating dense, tough tissue inside the body, often resulting in musculoskeletal pain. When adhesions (often known as trigger points) form they interfere and alter the proper motion of the muscles and joints. Active Release Techniques in Kansas City are often the main soft tissue treatment for collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes.
What It Treats
Chiropractic A.R.T. can help reduce and/or eliminate musculoskeletal dysfunction and pain associated with, but not limited to:
- Back pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shoulder pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee pain
- Tennis elbow
- Shin splints

How Active Release Techniques Work
Chiropractic A.R.T. is the process of manually assessing soft tissue structures and applying a specific treatment protocol. There are over 500 specific techniques that are unique to A.R.T. Each protocol consists of applying precise tension and compression to the designated tissue.
Once the tension and compression is applied the patient will actively perform a specific movement or the doctor will take them passively through the movement.
