Active Release Technique®
ART is a patented, state of the art soft-tissue-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. Every ART session includes both examination and treatment. Your certified ART provider uses their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Graston Technique® treats scar tissue and adhesions within the tissue, which limits range of motion, and in many instances causes pain, that can prevent normal muscle function. Graston Technique® incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables your provider to effectively detect and treat scar tissue anywhere in the body. Graston® tools are stainless steel instruments used to "comb over" and "catch" on any fibrotic tissue present, which immediately identifies the areas of restriction. Once the tissue has been identified, the instruments are used to break up the scar tissue and improve function.
Corrective exercise is a functional movement system that generally includes a series of specific micro-exercises to aid in the rehabilitation and prevention of injuries to your major joints, such as the knee, ankle, hip, shoulder, etc... Your SFC provider will determine which exercises are appropriate for you, assist you with performing them correctly during your visit and educate you on how and when to perform them at home, for best results.
What you put into your body on a daily basis can have a greater impact on your health than anything else you do. There are many myths, fads and just plain misinformation about food that make it difficult to really know what’s good for you and what’s not – and to make it even more complicated, that answer isn’t the same for everyone. Your UprightHealth provider can help you develop (And stick to!) eating habits that will have a positive effect on your specific health goals.
Kinesiology taping is a therapeutic method designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process by providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Kinesiology taping techniques have a "lifting" effect on the skin that can alleviate pain, facilitate lymphatic drainage and decrease inflammation. Kinesiology tape is latex-free, waterproof and wearable for days at a time.
