    Active Release Techniques

    So I go to the chiropractor for my neck and back. Works great and I go every 3-4 weeks.

    Now when I was in there last time I inquired about a massage as well. They said their brochure was the website. I visit the site and learn that my chiropractor is also trained in 'ART'. Now I have been trying to get my shoulder better for a long time and ART says it can help rotator cuff injuries. Has anyone ever used this or know more about it?

    Yea, I did this once, but it wasn't at a chiropractors office.... there were a bunch of Asian women involved and the place was in Atlanta. I knew it would be interesting when the sign said Jaguzzi Spa..... It was "Active Release" for sure.... but I don't think its gonna help your rotator cuff.

    Depends on the lotion they use to be honest. Some of those Asian places will rub ya raw to the point that you can't use your pecker for a week.

    I did about 2 months worth of ART before my rotator cuff surgery. I think it would have helped a lot more if my shoulder wasn't as bad as it was. Even the guy who did the ART said I needed surgery but it did help.

    I have been thinking about having more done for pt but im doing massage right now.

    If your injury is not severe I think it can help a lot.

    Thanks lovbtys. I need to find out the scope of my injury. I think just go into the doc? Do they have to scope it?

    To really find out you need a mri with contrast dye. A good ART therapist may be able to give you a idea.

    No art is not massage, its stretching and pressure point mostly.
