Dr. Athing specializes in Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT). The same nerves that operate our joints also control the
muscles around each vertebrae. To really help the joints
maintain their normal alignment and mobility, the spasms in
the muscles need to be treated as well.
Over the years Dr.
Athing has received training in and has used a variety of
techniques to relax the muscles. The best method he has
found for making quick, significant and long-lasting changes
in the muscle tension is a form of MRT developed by a
chiropractor who works with many professional athletes. The
technique breaks up adhesions quickly and with a feeling of
it "hurts good." MRT doesn't address other problems such as
trigger points, but it releases trapped nerves causing arm,
shoulder, hip and leg pain, tingling and numbness.
