Compass Chiropractic is your source for Des Moines massage alternative, Active Release Techniques. While Des Moines massage generally focuses only on putting pressure on problem tight areas or scar tissues, Des Moines massage alternative Active Release Techniques combines very specific patient-assisted stretching with provider-applied pressure. This combination is often able to permanently resolve difficult-to-treat conditions which respond minimally to Des Moines massage or Des Moines chiropractic care alone.

If you're searching for a Des Moines chiropractor, please consider Dr. David Krohse and Compass Chiropractic Des Moines. If you'd like a demonstration of how chiropractic and ART can help your condition, call today for a free, no-obligation consultation where Dr. Krohse will personally take the time to answer your health care questions about chiropractic.
