ART® (Active Release Techniques®)
ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue technique that is utilized to treat numerous muscular and soft tissue conditions. Shoulder pain, shin splints, plantar fascists, knee problems, tennis elbow, and achilles tendonitis are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART®. Dr. Stude was the first ART® provider in the state of Minnesota.
The Graston Technique®, a soft-tissue instrument-assisted manual therapy, helps the practitioner detect and treat scare tissue and restrictions that affect normal function.
Niel Asher Technique™
The Niel Asher Technique™ is clinically proven to unlock frozen shoulder with a hands on approach. The NAT™ uses a definitive sequence of manipulations and pressure points to the shoulder joints and soft-tissues. The NAT is set apart from standard approaches because it doesn’t force the arm into a restricted range of motion but offers gentle stimulation to muscles in a resting state. This treatment can quickly and effectively improve range of motion, relieve pain, and increase power and strength.
Spinal Traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine. Spinal traction stretches the spine and improves the the body's ability to heal itself. It is typically very effective for degenerative changes, disc herniation, and compression injuries, after reducing the likelihood for a surgical procedure.
