"Dr. Jake has been instrumental in my ongoing recovery. In 1984 I had melanoma skin cancer that required surgery. Unfortunately, the surgeon unnecessarily removed muscle that has resulted in a severe gait problem. Without Dr. Jake, I am not sure if I would be walking today. I cannot fully express my gratitude for Dr. Jake taking me under his wing after so many doctors had abandoned me."

Active Release Technique® (A.R.T.)
ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Over-used muscles can cause your body to produce tough, dense scare tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely, leaving the patient with shorter, weaker tissues and tendons. As a result patients can experience, headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, tennis elbow, and many more. Many of these and other conditions can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART®.
Every ART session is a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobiliation that enables clinicians to effectively break down scare tissue and fascial restrictions. It is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or acute and post surgical. The Graston Technique® offers many advantages to the patient such as decreased overall time of treatment, fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication and helps resolve chronic conditions thought to be permanent.
Conditions successfully treated with Graston Technique®: Cervical sprain/strain (neck pain), Lumbar sprain/strain (back pain), Carpal Tunnel Syndrom (wrist pain), Plantar Fascitis (foot pain), Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow), Medial Epicondylitis (golfer's elbow), Rotator Cuff Tendinosis (shoulder pain), Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain), Achilles Tendinosis (ankle pain), Fibromyalgia, Scar Tissue, Trigger Fingers, and Shin Splints.
Trigenics® incorporates a gentle synergistic combindation of contemporary western with recent advances in functional neurology. The unique combination significantly accelerates healing and often helps where all else has failed. Specifically, when muscles undergo stress or injury, their sensors stop sending proper nerve reflex signals to the brain. These muscles then become neurologically short or weak causing improper joint movement, and therefore will not strengthen or stretch fully with exercise or rehabilitation. With Trigenics®, light exercise using specific resisted movements during treatment will help manipulate and redirect your nerve signals effectively 'reseting' how the brain communicates with the muscles and body.
