Our Clinic is a multidisciplinary state-of-the-art practice. Below are some of the different treatments that we provide.

ART has been developed, refined and patented by P. Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP. As a chiropractor, Dr. Leahy noticed that his patients’ symptoms often pointed toward changes in soft tissue (muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves) rather than to a skeletal problem. By using tension and a patient’s body movements on soft tissue, Dr. Leahy was able to consistently resolve over 90% of his patients’ problems.

The Active Release Techniques Soft Tissue Management System provides a way to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of a variety of repetitive stress injuries or “overuse” syndromes. These syndromes are given familiar names like rotator cuff syndrome, tendonitis and plantar fascitis. Other conditions that fall directly into this category are post-operative scar tissue, carpal tunnel, chronic low back pain, and hyper extension/flexion injury (whiplash).

Many patients experience complete recovery after only 5–10 visits, although this depends on the severity of their injuries. Because of the soft tissue component, where other treatments fail, ART succeeds. The bottom line is that patients get well quickly, completely, and with much less expense. In fact because success rates are so high and costs are so low, the Colorado Compensation Insurance Authority is funding a study comparing Active Release to more conventional or typical treatments for cumulative trauma injuries.

Regardless of your activity level you can benefit from Active Release. From those who are victims of car accidents—or even the proud weekend warrior—Active Release has proven to be a fast, effective, non-invasive way to heal a wide variety of soft tissue injuries.
