WHAT IS ACTIVE

WHAT IS

Scar tissue?

Active Release Technique®, or ART®, is a hands-on muscle treatment used to identify and treat soft tissue injuries that can occur from trauma or repetitive over use. Active Release treats scar tissue in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves without injuring the surrounding soft tissue. Active Release maintains the health of the soft tissue surrounding the joints ensuring proper function of both the soft tissues and the joints.

 

 

Scar tissue is the dense, weak connective tissue which forms a scar; it can be found on any tissue on the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. This fibrous material binds itself to damaged soft tissue fibers in an effort to draw the damaged fibers back together and can impede the function of surrounding muscles and proper joint motion. This can cause muscle tension and nerve entrapment, leading to a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, pain, or numbness.

 

Scar tissue occurs from:

  • Acute conditions (pulls, tears, strains, etc.)
  • Repetitive movements
  • Hypoxia (tissue not getting enough oxygen)

After relocating to the Wilmington area about eight years ago, I was referred to Dr. McGraw. He is by far the best chiropractor I've ever worked with. No matter what my ailment or injury has been, Dr. McGraw has looked to the root of my pain and provided me insight on ways to treat and prevent future occurrences.  More recently he has help me manage my lower back pain and resolve my elbow tendinitis which has allowed me to resume my life. I couldn't ask for anything more!!! His staff is also A++, I would highly recommend!!!

From the moment I walked into Active Care Chiropractic, I knew I was in the right place. Everyone was extremely friendly, ready to help me with chronic pain associated with chiari malformation. I'd already had decompression surgery and thought I was on the road to recovery. Shortly after the procedure, recurring pain kept me from enjoying my family, my friends and my work. I couldn't turn my head, I experienced dizziness, intense headaches, pseudo-seizures, severe neck and back pain, and tightness through the shoulders.

 

Dr. Bradburn is understanding, listens carefully to my concerns and worked with me to devise a plan to get relief. He is generous with his time, explains each manipulation thoroughly, and does so gently and with constant awareness of my condition. He introduced me to exercises I can do on my own to support his work. Over the past few months, Dr. Bradburn has helped me achieve full range of motion and helped me live a pain-free, fulfilling life again. He's a true professional who does so in a friendly manner. I'm feeling terrific and am so glad I found Active Care Chiropractic and Dr. Bradburn
