Active Release Techniques

Compass Chiropractic is your Des Moines Iowa area source for Active Release Technique (ART). Dr. David Krohse is one of just a few ART certified providers in Iowa. This patented technique shook up the sports health care world with its rapid and permanent resolution of so many different conditions such as rotator cuff injuries, plantar fascitis, and IT band syndrome. Lately it has gained attention for results with more common conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, headaches, neck/upper back tightness, and chronic pain syndromes. People in Des Moines, Iowa are thrilled to have Active Release Techniques available

Properly functioning muscles glide smoothly over other muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Within individual muscles, muscle fibers normally glide smoothly over other muscle fibers. When an injury or overuse situation occurs, adhesions or scar tissue can form in between the muscles and other structures and limit movement. Pain, tightness, weakness, numbness, tingling, and a cycle of re-injury result.

Active Release Techniques achieves permanent results in Iowa by combining very specific patient-assisted stretching of muscles with pressure into the problematic areas. This combination is able to overcome muscle adhesions and break up scar tissue resulting in restored motion and function. Long term resolution of many different conditions can be achieved in a relatively small number of treatments.

Do you feel like you've tried every treatment for your pain?

There is a way to become pain free.

Whether you're an avid runner, like to take a walk everyday, or just dream of getting out of bed without pain, Active Release Techniques frequently offers a permanent solution for your condition. Soft-tissue injuries are one of the most common culprits for pain and have traditionally been treated with drugs, heat, cold, rest, and massage. These therapies usually provide minimal relief and only a temporary solution.  Active Release Techniques has changed the lives of so many people who thought they'd tried everything for their problem.

A free consultation is always available at Compass Chiropractic in Des Moines, Iowa where Dr. David Krohse will personally take the time to show you how ART works and how it can affect your condition.
