They say that art has healing powers, but before you grab a brush to start painting your pains away, please note that when it comes to pain relief, the word ART usually refers to something else. Come to think of it, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, and neck pains are rather common among artists themselves, so they can benefit from this form of ART as well.
ART stands for Active Release Technique in NYC and is considered one of the best forms of soft tissue treatment nowadays. Extremely effective yet non-invasive, this state-of-the-art soft tissue system is a movement-based massage developed and patented by Dr. P. Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP.
Combining massage techniques with patient movements leads to the identification and removal of scar tissue that usually results from injurious repetitive use or overuse of muscles. Such malady is already quite common to general folk and even more likely to occur among athletes, given the highly physical nature of their occupation. When muscles are abused in this manner, they are prone to acute conditions such as pulls, tears, and collisions. They are also liable to suffer from micro-trauma and hypoxia (oxygen deprivation).
Scar tissue developed from overuse conditions is restrictive to normal movement and, when left untreated, it can cause graver issues such as weakened muscles, tendonitis, and trapped nerves. Any of these can then lead to various discomforts such as stiffness, weakness, decreased range of motion, loss of strength, numbness, tingling, and pain.
Through the use of Active Release Technique, NYC practitioners are able to address and resolve various medical issues concerning the nerves, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and muscles of the body. Some of the more common conditions treated through ART are sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger points, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, headaches, neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis and Illiotibial Band Syndrome.
To obtain the benefits of Active Release Technique, patients in New York must realize that the treatment method requires collaboration between the practitioner and the patient. The practitioner performs the examination and the massage while the patient executes specific movements upon the direction of the practitioner. Together, they work toward achieving the desired results.
The ART treatment is offered by different healthcare providers all over the city, from sports doctors and physical therapists to chiropractors and massage therapists. In order to qualify to provide this treatment, they must first undergo training and certification from Dr. Leahy. For more information please visit http://www.backandbodyny.com/.

Most women today feel that they need to work longer and harder than ever just to achieve their goals, but in the long run, it can mean the neglect of their health and well-being. How many hours of sleep do you sacrifice, or how many meals do you skip just to face pressing issues at hand? Worse, how intense should you wait for your various pains and aches to rise to, before you find time to get professional health care?
Health experts warn that women neglecting their health can suffer from serious medical conditions later in life. It is best to seek a treatment method that has a holistic approach, allowing you to not simply address problem areas but also work on your mind and body wellness as a whole. Treatment through chiropractic, NYC experts say, can help with conditions that are specific to women.
Back pain. Whether you are working all day hunched over your desk, carrying kids or juggling the million tasks of managing a business or a household, the everyday stress and workload can cause debilitating back pain. Chiropractic with the use of spinal manipulation can help stretch your spine and ease the knots and stiffness in your back, as well as in other problem areas such as the neck, shoulders and wrists.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). At the onset of a menstrual period, you can suffer from a host of symptoms including headaches, bloatedness, stomach cramps, pelvic pain and other forms of physical aches. Unfortunately, all these can also come with irritability, low mood and fatigue, triggering even more discomfort. Chiropractic can help align your spine and nerves to aid the flow of energy and balance in your body, especially in your hormonal and reproductive systems, easing some of the symptoms of PMS
Reproductive health. Many women are now making sure that they see a chiropractor during pregnancy and after giving birth, to help in pelvic balance and alignment as well as to seek immediate relief from the various pains associated with their changing bodies. On the other hand, those who are finding it hard to conceive can also seek the help of a chiropractor, as studies have shown that clinical intervention with chiropractic care can improve women’s reproductive and overall health, allowing better chances of a successful pregnancy.
Menopause. Hormonal imbalance during menopause can trigger a number of symptoms including hot flashes, anxiety and mood swings, night sweats, etc. The common method is hormonal replacement therapy, but for an increasing number who do not want to deal with synthetic hormones and their side effects, chiropractic is seen as a better way to help address menopausal symptoms. Since it can bring back the flow and energy to the central nervous system, chiropractic complemented by other natural remedies can provide relief during menopause.
