Sullivan of NOVA Chiropractic & Wellness Center will be providing Active Release Technique (ART) care to the triathletes at the Nation's Triathlon in Washington, DC
Dr. Sullivan will be providing Active Release Technique for the triathletes at the Nation's Triathlon in Washington, DC on September 13, 2009. "Some common injuries that we will treat at the triathlon will be hamstring or calf muscle strains, muscle soreness, foot pain, lower back pain or shoulder pain from the swim" says Dr. Sullivan.
Active Release Technique is a state of the art patented soft tissue technique designed to fix the injuries that occur to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. ART can also be used to increase the athletes performance by loosening up tight muscles and preparing the athletes body for the race, because a tight muscle is a weaker muscle. This technique is great at healing injuries that occur from repetitive strain such as training for a triathlon.
