Myofascial Release Therapy

Hometown Spine & Sport is proud to offer Active Release Technique (ART) in conjunction with other soft tissue rehabilitation services. Active Release Technique is a specific form of a sports massage. When muscles are injured, scar tissue builds and may linger for months and even years after the injury. Active Release Technique may help to alleviate lingering symptoms from old injuries.  Active Release Technique works by actively applying pressure to an injured muscle then stretching the muscle to break up scar tissue.


Our clinic places a large emphasis of our treatments on ‘Soft Tissue Myofascial Release’. Fascia is essentially a layer of skin that sits on top of our muscles throughout our body. Fascia can develop scar tissue or fibrotic adhesions after an injury to the area has occurred. That scar tissue can linger for months and years if not properly addressed. We find the areas in your body where fascial restrictions are and break up that treatment with a gentle but effective approach.

"Chiropractor that goes the extra mile"

Love the office atmosphere. Dr. Josh is extremely thorough and utilizes multiple different techniques to fix your issue. I have been to chiropractors before that do the same 3 things and I would see no improvement. You will not get that here!!


Dr. Josh also recommends stretches/exercises to do at home which I greatly appreciate! If you want a chiropractic that goes the extra mile this is it!!

"Honesty, integrity, and compassionate quality care "

Dr. Josh helped me through some severe back pain a few months ago, I couldn’t stand straight, sit, sleep or walk without being in excruciating pain. After my initial visit, I was 90% pain-free! And not only did my adjustment take care of my immediate problem he also took the time to listen to all of my concerns and issues and made a game plan to help me be pain-free.


The staff is always so friendly and the office itself is very modern, clean and just a great atmosphere all around! No high-pressure sales here either, which is what I’ve experienced in the past from other chiropractors, just honesty, integrity, and compassionate quality care is what you’ll find here!

"Highly recommend this place"

I am a competitive Olympic weightlifter that had been dealing with some nagging shoulder pain and neck pain for a few months after my last big meet. My shoulders were weak and unstable and my personal methods of rolling them out and trying to strengthen them were not making my situation better.


After deciding an old shoulder injury that was not properly taken care may have been impacting me, I decided to check out Hometown Spine and Sport. Within a little less than two months, we were able to break through scar tissue, strengthen the little supporting muscles, and completely rid of my shoulder pain. I have regained full range of motion and managed to achieve greater records in my snatch and clean&jerk lifts as a result.


Highly recommend this place. He is so knowledgeable and friendly, and really gets a lot of work done on you in a short enough amount of time that you can stop in on your lunch break.
