ART is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they often result from injury to over-used muscles.
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.
Before selecting an ART provider, look into how long they have been practicing ART and how many certifications in ART they hold. You can find that information here.
Awesome chiropractor & she has assisted me SO much with dry needling! Very thankful for Dr. Kristine Maggs.
Dr. Kristine Maggs is not only very positive and pleasant but very knowledgeable. I have been going to her for several weeks for active release therapy and like the fact that she is all about getting a person back to their chosen activities.
For about a year and a half I suffered from an impingement in my shoulder. The pain had gotten so bad I had begun to lose sleep. My lifts were also being effected tremendously. I had very little movement to the shoulder that I could barely raise it above my head. I had heard about a procedure called Active Release Therapy (ART) and that’s when I found Dr. Kristine. Dr. Kristine immediately knew my problem and attacked it aggressively with treatments twice a week. After the first visit, I felt instant relief and was able to get a good night’s rest. Her early morning office hours were very convenient with my early gym/work schedule. Kristine and her receptionists always had friendly smiles and a welcoming, clean professional practice. I’ve recommended clients as well as co-workers, family and friends to her and they’ve come away more knowledgeable as well as free from pain. She explains the cause of your problem as well as showing proper form from preventing any more injuries. The shoulder was one of many areas that Kristine has treated for me. Thanks for having such a Great Practice.
