When we stop moving, even laying down to sleep at night, the small spaces between our muscles become interlaced with “fuzz” that can lead to more serious adhesions, especially after an injury, and further lack of motion in our muscles i.e. “KNOTS” causing tightness, stiffness and soreness.

The soft tissue work preformed by Dr. Eckman is specific to addressing this problem, leading to more motion between your muscles and less tightness, stiffness, and pain. These types of soft tissue symptoms are resolved best when you continue with regular treatment throughout an entire healing cycle of 8 weeks.

Using pressure and tension from my hands and specialized patient movements, knots, adhesions, scar tissue can be remodeled allowing the sliding surfaces of your muscles to be restored eliminating pain, inflammation and lymphatic congestion. Benefits also include improved muscular vascularity, oxygenation of tissues and improved muscle quality. ART has been used on professional athletes such as Payton Manning.
