Why would my muscles hurt so much or not heal on their own?
Our bodies develop scar tissue quickly in areas that are irritated, stressed and tired. This can be from sitting with poor posture, walking in unsupportive shoes, or minor sports injuries. Tough, dense scar tissue prevents proper blood flow and restricts optimal movement of tissues which can lead to pain and soreness. Nerves can be irritated by this dense scar tissue and alter sensation to our arms and legs.
ART uses gentle examination and treatment that feels like a comfortable massage. Dr. Anthony may use ART to reverse the role of scar tissue relating to your pain. ART is often successful at fixing the problem for the long term instead of living with nagging pain. Patients often only need 1 or 2 checkups per year after symptoms have resolved.
