Here at Adkins Chiropractic in Anchorage, our chiropractors, Dr. Joel Adkins and Dr. Kyle Hanford, not only offer but specialize in Active Release Technique (ART). This treatment option is designed to help break apart scar tissue to improve the range of motion of your joints and soft tissues while lowering your pain.
Dr. Joel Adkins and Dr. Kyle Hanford treat numerous musculoskeletal injuries with the Active Release Technique. A few of the injuries our ART chiropractors treat include overuse and repetitive motion injuries, back pain, neck pain, sciatica, car accident injuries and sports injuries, such as runner's knee, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow.
When you come into our Anchorage office for an appointment, our ART chiropractors will get a detailed account of your medical history, your pain and the nature of how your injury was sustained. Then, a thorough examination will be performed in order to determine the location and extent of your injuries.
Your initial examination and each subsequent examination and treatment will involve a physical examination before the adjustment. During this part of your treatment, our chiropractors feel for tight spots in the soft tissues and muscles as well as scar tissue. This helps identify the location of your treatment.
An ART adjustment is slightly different than a standard chiropractic adjustment. Rather than laying stationary in a specific position, we will ask you to move in a specific way while the adjustment is performed along with certain massage techniques. This helps free your connective tissues, muscles and ligaments while breaking apart scar tissue.
To schedule an appointment with one of our Anchorage chiropractors, Dr. Adkins or Dr. Hanford, please call us at 907-333-3535.
