Active Release Techniques (ART)

Active Release Techniques (ART) is a innovative treatment that is helping world-class athletes, active individuals, and persons of all walks of life.  ART is designed to deal with the scar tissue and adhesions that build up as result of soft tissue injury.

Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART therapist uses his or her 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.

Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, iliotibial band syndrome, rotator cuff syndrome, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, patellar tendonitis, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be treated with ART. 

ART is also used to treat post-surgical scar tissue and peripheral nerve entrapments like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that is used to  break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and treat areas of soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the methods of stretching most used by today's athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity. The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching  works with the body's natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle, joints and fascia.

 

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a natural form of healthcare.  A chiropractor is a doctor that specializes in the non-drug treatment of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.  Like medical doctors, chiropractors first complete the traditional "pre-med" sequence then undergo an additional four years of training in the biological and clinical sciences.  

What conditions do Chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors treat a variety of common musculoskeletal conditions, including back and neck pain, TMJ/TMD, rotator cuff syndrome, carpal tunnel and other nerve entrapment syndromes, sprains/strains, sciatica, muscle tension headache, shin splints, iliotibial band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and much, much more.

The Chiropractic profession has changed dramatically over the last twenty years and is now on the cutting edge of a major movement in healthcare toward lower costs and less invasive modes of treatment.  Surveys show that chiropractors enjoy the highest rate of patient satisfaction among healthcare professionals.  

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

Dr. Sherman is a Fellow of the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture.  He uses anatomically based acupuncture and dry needling techniques for pain management and scar tissue degradation.  

Video Foot-Strike Analysis

Before you buy running shoes let Dr. Sherman asses your gait.  Dr. Sherman will examine your feet and the way you run to determine which running/walking shoe(s) might work best for you.

This analysis is used to look for over/under pronation and muscular imbalances that can affect your stride.

Custom Orthotics

Orthotics are used to treat a variety of foot problems including plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, neuromas, over pronation/supination.

Ironcare makes orthotics using the digital Amfit system. A digitized impression of the foot is captured and modified using highly specialized software. This results in a durable orthotic with corrections milled all the way into the forefoot.
