For those suffering from chronic pains, alignment issues or bad posture, a new service available at Back In Line Family Chiropractic could ease injuries and soreness.

Active Release Techniques is similar to massage therapy, but is more interactive, said Heather Malahy, a licensed massage therapist and ART provider at Back In Line.

In the 15-minute session, Malahy pushes on the muscle to shorten it, and then holds it in place, and stretches to lengthen it. Clients move their muscles as Malahy works on them, compared to massage therapy, where they remain still.

ART is more effective for some patients because it targets a single muscle, while massage therapy works a broader area, or group of muscles.

Patients come in with injuries or irritation from any repetitive motion, posture issues, or have hip and low back pain, Malahy said.

Most patients have 12 visits, spread out over about one month.

Many patients also suffer from a muscle issue, and ART treatments complement typical adjustment treatments, said Dr. James Stubbs.

 

Kathleen Gormley is interning this semester for the Ahwatukee Foothills News. She is a sophomore at Arizona State University.
