Experience Active Release Technique for Pain Relief
Bull Tullock, owner of Bodyworks by Bull Therapeutic Massage, is the only Active Release Technique (ART) provider in the area. He explains that treatment duration and frequency for chronic pain may vary depending on the severity and complexity of the injury. Many times, in just a couple of short sessions, years of pain and suffering are completely alleviated.
Tullock says, “An ART provider is qualified to assess and treat over 400 structures, so we see a broad range of injuries and conditions. He is certified in full body, upper and lower extremities and spine, nerve entrapment and biomechanical motion analysis. A single ART session can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes and the client is encouraged to wear exercise/gym/loose clothing for freedom of movement.
ART is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue/movement-based technique 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, among others.
These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often the result of overused muscles. ART uses motion to fix the problem. Once the injury has been assessed, the provider uses hands-on treatment and patient motion to free up the problem areas.
