What Are Adhesions?

Acute injury sustained by trauma, exercise or repetitive stress leads to an inflammatory process.  The body lays down scar tissue in an attempt to stabilize the area of insult, which causes adhesions.  These adhesions form in a haphazard fashion, causing an altered texture and sticking together of tissues.  A.R.T. is applied to separate these adhesions.

Think of adhesions as glue that holds tissues together.  If two muscles are "stuck" together, it will impede their function causing problems elsewhere, leading to a vicious cycle.  This is how a shoulder problem can lead to an elbow problem or tight hamstrings can lead to low back pain.  If adhesions form around a nerve, it can cause numbness and tingling.  This is commonly encountered by people who use computers often, leading to carpal tunnel syndrome.

  • "Webb Spine has been so valuable to me and my career. I can't make a living if I am not healthy and on the field playing, so I only trust my body to the best there is. Dr. Webb and his staff go above and beyond in their service and expertise. The A.R.T. treatment and the Pettibon adjustments that I have received from Dr. Webb keep me playing my best. Without it, I would not be able to perform the way I want to and need to."
