KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
Knee pain is very frustrating. It is a kind of pain that can prevent you from enjoying things such as walking, exercising or playing your favorite sport. Apart from the daily activities, knee pain can also interfere with your sleep. To make things worse, most knee conditions respond slowly to traditional treatment approaches.
How Active-release technique can help with knee pain
Active release technique is a powerful therapy that works deep with the body muscles to reduce pain. It is one of the best therapies for treating knee pain. For the knees to function properly, the alignment of tendons, muscles and the bones should be correct. If there is a problem with any of these elements, you might experience a lot of pain. Other times, injuries can cause knee pain.
Active release is a treatment method that can be used to address muscles and joint problems. The technique is different from other treatment methods because it is designed to detect and address issues that interfere with the normal functions of the body, including knees.
ART can be described as an active-massage. To treat knee pain, the practitioner applies a specific tension using his or her hands on the affected area as the patient performs some movements. The movements help to lengthen and shorten the muscles to identify and fix the problems. Active release technique is a safe treatment approach for correcting tissue injuries, joint injuries and muscle related problems.
Apart from knee pain, it can be used to treat back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, shoulder, and neck pain among many others.
Why is active release technique different from other therapies when treating knee pain?
Even though active release technique might look similar to other therapies, it is very unique. It is an approach that concentrates on developing the ability to feel through the nerves and the skin. During the process, the practitioner must be able to choose the best strategy for the patient based on the cause of knee pain. During the training in various active release techniques, the practitioners are taught how to look for tissues under the skin. Though touching, they can be able to identify the affected tissues and choose the best technique to reduce the pain. This means that active release technique is not just a normal massage done on various massage clinics.
Why should you choose ART for Knee pain treatment?
Knee pain is not an ordinary pain. In an attempt to get rid of knee pain, there are several treatment methods you can use. Some of the common approaches include ice, heat, stretching, and exercise. There are also some complicated approaches that include surgery. However, when you choose some of these methods, it might take you a long time for the knee to recover fully. The main reason why ART is effective is that it addresses the underlying issue of knee pain. Treatment methods such as ice, heat or rest only focus on the symptoms. They do not address the muscle dysfunction or restrictions the way active release technique does. If you are suffering from knee pain, visit LVPRC for active release technique.
