Active Release? What does it do?

Muscle pain is something that everyone suffers from at some point during there life.  All these aches and pains can take a toll on you both mentally and physically. An effective method of treatment many chiropractors and physiotherapists in Calgary use is called Active Release Technique.

Active Release Technique is a form of soft tissue therapy in which you manually apply tension and pressure into a muscle very similar to massage and then move the body part through a motion to get the muscle into a stretched position.

When an individual has muscle pain, what is happening is scar tissue and fibrosis due to trauma to the tissue. Trauma can be as little as holding a posture to long, slouching, or falling from a ladder. The fibrosis in the tissue prevents blood flow and thus proper oxygen supply to the tissue. As a result of this, the muscle is getting starved from nutrients and you get pain.

Active release works by breaking up this scar tissue and fibrosis and restores proper blood flow/oxygen to the tissue. When this occurs the pain dissipates and the normal biomechanics of the muscle and joint return to normal.

You can expect it to take a few treatments to get the full effect of the treatment. You will notice some relief in as little as one treatment.
