Achieving and maintaining physical health is an emphasis in our practice. The long-term condition of your body and any rehabilitative treatment depends upon strong and healthy muscles and supporting bone.
Physical and physiotherapy have as a goal, like with massage, helping chiropractic be more effective and longer lasting.
Active Release Techniqe
Active Release Technique, sometimes referred to as ART, was created and patented by Dr. P. Michael Leahy and is credited with resolving over 90% of his patients problems. During an ART treatment, Dr. Yorker will perform an examination to evaluate how the muscles, tendons, nerves, fascia, and ligaments feel and move. Then, the abnormal tissues are treated by using directed tension while the patient moves in a very specific, directed way.
Physiotherapy modalities can be described as the application of mechanical and/or electrical forces to an area of the body in order to enhance its function and/or healing process. This may include heat, ice, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound and/or traction.
This is a series of specialized techniques that take advantage of doctor and patient one-on-one interaction in order to create gains in the flexibility of specific isolated muscle groups.
