Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. As an ART Doctor, I use my hands to evaluate the texture, tension, movement and function of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
These treatment protocols – over 500 of them – are unique to ART. They allow us to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.
Treatments take about 8-15 minutes for each area being treated. A condition may require 2-12 visits before full functionality is restored. Chiropractic manipulation is frequently carried out in conjunction with cold laser therapy to increase treatment effectiveness (look in tab “knee pain/plantar fasciitis” for more information on cold laser therapy).
Whenever possible, we have our patients perform active movements during the treatment process. Active motions stimulate neurological pathways in the spinal cord that help to reduce pain during treatment. Motion also help to reproduce the stresses the patient will actually be under during normal active motion.
Light comes in a variety of forms. The light that we see is the visible part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. Picture a rainbow. The light that is visible to us is a specific range of colors in that spectrum, but not the whole spectrum.
Other parts of the spectrum are not visible, such as the ultra-violet light that tans (or burns) your skin. Low-level laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum, hence the name cold laser.
The cold laser is very different from natural light. When natural light hits your skin it produces heat that can damage your skin. Since cold laser is one color, it travels in a straight line, it’s a single wavelength and its beam can be concentrated in a small area. It can penetrate the skin without heat, damage to your skin, or any known side effects.
