Our Philosophy

At the Active Relief Centre, we primarily use unique diagnostic methods. This is done through manual strength testing to determine which tissues are effected or failing. Once we have isolated the failing muscles and then determined why its failing, we can start to make a plan on how to resolve the problem. This leads to us using a variety of treatment techniques that specifically address the failing structures (active release technique, flexion distraction, joint manipulation, postural and nutritional advice, re-coordination exercises). Often, there is a partnership required in resolving a problem. This includes patient executed home care (ex:specific exercises, posture change, restrictions,etc.).

Intrerestingly, once we determine the failing muscles, other compensatory muscles can be predicted. These often are the symptomatic structures but not the primary problem area and hence where other treatments fail. People focus too much on the trees and don’t look at the forest. In other offices, treatment effect is very temporary or short lived and needs to be done indefinitely because they do not determine the cause.
