How active release helps you meet your goal of reducing neck pain
Our team has many therapy methods we may use to treat your neck pain. Having so many methods is helpful because you may not benefit from exactly the same type of therapy as other patients. A variety of neck issues may also be responsible for the pain you’re dealing with. For instance, our team may use different techniques to help you recover from a car accident-related neck injury than we will if you have osteoarthritis in your neck.
Active release is one of the techniques that allows our neck treatment plans to be so adaptable. There are three factors that make this technique so effective for neck injuries. The first factor is that it includes massage movements. Massaging your muscles and other soft tissues in your neck allow us to improve blood flow to your injury.
The second factor that’s a part of active release is directed tension. Directed tension occurs when our therapists apply pressure to your neck in a way that increases your neck muscle tension. This tension then causes your neck muscles to be stretched. Finally, active release can be performed using 500 different movements, although not all of these are designed to help your neck. The combination of massage, helpful movements and directed tension may help to reduce the pain of your neck injury and speed your recovery.
