Are you suffering from a sore neck or migraines from sitting at your computer desk all day? Constant lower back pain from driving or sitting for prolonged periods? Are you a runner experiencing foot or knee pain when out for a run on the trail or roads? Have you been in a car accident recently and are feeling whiplash following the accident? Did you experience a sports related injury that is keeping you out of the game? Have you been searching for a Canton chiropractor?

McBrearty sport and soft tissue, we are one of the top-rated Canton chiropractor offices in Stark County. At McBrearty chiropractic we focus on soft tissue and muscle therapy. All of our providers are certified in Active Release Technique (ART), which is a soft tissue therapy that incorporates manipulation with movement. 

Many everyday activities and sports can result in soft-tissue issues. The result can be pain, swelling, tears and bruising. When you visit our canton chiropractor office, our goal is to provide the best service, and to teach you all of the tools and techniques to help maintain feeling better and prevent injuries from happening in the future. 

 What should you expect on your first visit? When you schedule an appointment with one of our Active Release Technique providers, you will be taken into the room and given your first assessment with your main areas of concern/pain. The provider will treat the area of concern through hand manipulation (ART), and when deemed necessary, tools such as Graston scraping, dry needling, and myofascial cupping will be used to assist in the soft tissue therapy. If you consent, the chiropractor will be in after the soft tissue therapy to adjust you. 

When soft tissue treatment is completed, the ART provider will bring you into our rehab room and pass you off with one of our corrective exercise rehabilitation specialists. On your first visit we try not to overwhelm you with too much information or stimulation. You most likely will be sore after your first visit so we always start the first session in the rehab room with light myofascial rolling. We use lacrosse balls, foam rollers, and a variety of other tools to help soften the tissue to increase blood flow into the tissue and muscle. Soft tissue and muscle should be soft and supple. Blood hydrates the tissue, so through a series of rolling and stretching to increase blood flow into the area will help the healing process. 

On visits going forward when approved by the ART specialist, the corrective exercise specialist will go through a series of exercises that have been formulated to help retrain the body to work as one working system to get all muscles activated and strengthen to better support the lumbo-pelvic hip complex, the shoulder complex and the lower leg/foot complex. Exercises are used to strengthen muscles that have been underused and weakened from pain or injuries. Corrective exercise focuses on the problem as a whole interconnected chain, rather than just treating the area of complaint.
