Treating Overused Muscles

Patented, State-of-the-Art Technique

As an athlete or active individual, it is not uncommon to have frequent injuries or muscle pulls. One of the common conditions we treat here at Ballenger Chiropractic is the overuse of muscles. This may include symptoms from knee problems, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, back pain, headaches, shin splints, sciatica, and even plantar fasciitis. We aim to treat these conditions rapidly and permanently, relieving you of your pain and discomfort.

The types of conditions we treat may include:

  • Acute conditions, including such as muscle pulls or tears
  • Multiple small tears, such as micro-trauma
  • Insufficient amount of oxygen supply, also known as hypoxia

The method we use, Active Release Techniques ® , is a specialized soft tissue system/movement based technique which treats problems of the nerves, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and fascia. This system has proven itself to be incredibly effective. In fact, it has been used for professional athletes in a variety of sports including the NFL and Iron Man Series.
