Question: In addition to traditional chiropractic treatments, what are the other treatments that you use to care for patients?
Dr. Anthony: The most frequent tool that I use to care for my patients is manual therapy–using gentle touch to shift and change muscles, ligaments, & joints. One specific manual therapy style I use is Active Release Technique, or A.R.T. To a patient, A.R.T. looks and feels like a very comfortable, specific massage while moving your body into healthy positions. As a physician, I am thinking about complex layers and levels of tissue and specific locations that I’m touching, so it’s more specific than most massage therapy, but to a patient it feels that comfortable.
