State-of-the-Art Sports Medicine, Chiropractic Care and Active Release Technique: Serving Santa Monica and all of Los Angeles County.

How Chiropractic Care and Active Release Technique Can Change Your Life

People with chronic and acute pain often rely on over-the-counter pain medications to manage their pain. Unfortunately, taking too much pain prescription medications can have a severe residual effect on your kidneys and liver. But, a certified Active Release Technique (ART) chiropractor can find the source of your pain and provide a medication-free, non-invasive treatment solution to your pain symptoms.

Knowing the health benefits of Chiropractic Care and ART s the first step towards understanding how these therapies can help you have the strength, agility, and energy to live a pain-free life.

The Posture Analysis

A skilled chiropractor has a keen eye for posture. Poor posture allows conditions such as “text neck” to send sharp pain or create a dull soreness down the neck and back. Text neck is very dangerous, especially for young children as it can cause a premature degenerative condition around the vertebral column and permanently damage the cervical spine.

The way you exercise, walk, run, stand or sit for long periods can have an impact on your posture. For example, your shoulder may seem to dip slightly on one side, if your hips are not aligned. Your joint hip will also be affected, if you are used to running with your toes pointed outward.

An old sports injury will eventually affect your posture, as well. With a poor posture, you’ll end up experiencing pain and ultimately injury. Chiropractic care and ART will help strengthen and balance the parts of your body to support proper posture.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Osseous adjustment is the most common type of chiropractic treatments. The adjustment is performed to realign your body to its proper form so it can release pain from preventable musculoskeletal pressures and start healing itself from ailments. Everyday activities such as driving, sitting at your computer, or exercising can have an impact on how your bones and muscles support you. Chiropractic adjustments and regular ART treatments will create movement between your tight joints and prevent aches coming from pinched nerves, bad bone placement, and sore muscles.

Because it is almost impossible to change your entire lifestyle or do away with some of these daily stressors, chiropractic care, and Active Release Technique will come in handy in counteracting misalignment and improve your overall wellbeing. An ART-certified chiropractor has the skills to intuitively treat the subtle changes of your body, at each visit, to prevent unnecessary pain.

Overall Wellness Evaluation

A chiropractor understands that everything in your body is interconnected. Therefore, instead of treating the symptoms of an ailment with several medications that have side effects (causing more problems), a chiropractor will try to understand your physical, mental, and psychological health status before commencing treatment. Chiropractic care and ART therapies are based on ensuring that all aspects of your body’s wellness are functioning in harmony.

An experienced chiropractor will provide a wide range of services that guarantee your overall wellness. The chiropractor will examine the whole you to understand where you are and how you need to feel.

Chiropractic care and Active Release Technique will help you improve or manage conditions such as:

Chiropractic is not just for pain relief. The nervous systems hold the key to the body’s incredible potential to heal itself. Proper chiropractic therapy equals proper health. Chiropractic care and ART is an effective, excellent treatment option for an array of conditions and soft tissue injuries such as sports injuries. The therapies give your body the alignment and flexibility it needs to exercise safely and keep up with life or work.
