3. ART Is Certainly A Work Of Art
After having chronic low back pain for almost two years, I was literally desperate for relief this past year while training for the ING NYC Marathon. Not only did I have no idea what caused it, I was just as clueless (even as a trainer) when it came to how to correct it. I have seen handfuls of massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists and acupuncturists only to have my pain come straight back (no pun intended) shortly after.
Oh the amount of lululemon I could have bought with that money?! And then I met Dr. Steven D. Levine. As a New York certified chiropractor/Active Release Techniques® provider, he literally put my back “back” together again. So you are probably wondering, what is Active Release Techniques®? Active Release Techniques® is a patented state of the art soft tissue movement based massage technique that is proven to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Active Release Treatments separates, releases, and stretches the connective tissue adhesions, restores vascular and lymph circulation, and increases your range of motion, flexibility and strength. In short, this technique is probably what happened to Humpty Dumpty after all the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put him back together again. Seriously. Even after running a marathon, I have zero lower back pain. In-credible! Try ART today.
