Dr. Heimark often incorporates Graston Technique and Active Release Technique in his practice. These are highly-effective in the breakdown of soft-tissue fibrosis and scar-tissue. It is this type of abnormal tissue that can lead to painful tightness and even tissue contractions in the body, which may not respond well to other types of care.

Active Release Technique is a soft-tissue therapy that uses manual pressure through a range of motion to alleviate muscle tightness and contractures. It is especially useful for freeing nerves from chronic pressure, which can cause tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness.
