Springfield Chiropractor, Dr. Todd P. Sullivan, provides Active Release Technique at The North Face Endurance Challenge.
Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (1888PressRelease) September 26, 2009 - From hamstring injuries, hip muscle tightness, foot pain, to lower back pain, and falls from rocky terrain, Dr. Todd P. Sullivan of NOVA Chiropractic & Wellness Center will be providing Active Release Technique (ART) care to the runners at The North Face Endurance Challenge in Washington, DC.
Dr. Sullivan provided Active Release Technique for the runners at The North Face Endurance Challenge on September 19, 2009. "With this race being an ultramarathon of up to 50 miles, the injuries we treated were much different from a typical running race. The ultramarathon race and trail course caused more hip and repetitive strain injuries and ankle sprains from a road race." says Dr. Sullivan.
Active Release Technique is a state of the art patented soft tissue technique designed to fix the injuries that occur to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. ART can also be used to increase the athletes performance by loosening up tight muscles and preparing the athletes body for the race, because a tight muscle is a weaker muscle. This technique is great at healing injuries that occur from repetitive strain such as training for a marathon or ultramarathon.

Prior to that, he was one of two chiropractors selected to complete his residency training at the National Naval Medical in Bethesda, MD.
