Active Release Techniques
ART is a patented, state of the art soft  tissue system/ movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Chiropractic  emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of biomechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care restores the normal movement and function of the body and relieves pain.  While the focus of a chiropractic adjustment is often on the spine because of its significant impact on the entire body, chiropractic can also address other joints throughout the body, ranging from the jaw to the joints of the arms and legs.

 Activator Method Chiropractic Technique
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient.
Incorporating the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis and the Activator can help restore spinal balance safely and comfortably.
The technique utilizes specific protocols to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length inequality, identify issues with body mechanics, and test neurological reflexes. By analyzing results of these examinations, Dr. Phelan can initiate the process of restoring spinal balance in the patient, gently and effectively.
