Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening therapy is highly beneficial for musculoskeletal dysfunction and disorders of the nervous system. As well as mobilizing unhealthy spinal structures. This technique is more effective than any other technique we know about.
AIS has a unique approach of lengthening and unwinding muscles. When a person is suffering from a musculoskeletal issue, the muscles are shortened, contracted, or twisted. Massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture may also be helpful, but not to the same degree as AIS. In deep tissue massage, the kneading motion on twisted muscles is soothing, but the relief is often short-lived because kneading does not optimally return a muscle to its normal position and length. Chiropractic can be helpful, but adjustments will be more productive after Active Isolated Stretching therapy. First lengthen all the muscles, then see how much better the chiropractic adjustment feels. Similarly, acupuncture treatment will be much more effective after AIS therapy. By lengthening the muscles, the acupuncture needles are able to follow a clearer pathway.
