Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.)

Active Release Techniques, also known as “Crackless” Chiropractic, is a soft-tissue mobilization technique that treats conditions such as headaches, back pains, plantar fasciitis, and knee problems/ These are often associated with overused muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Instead of cracking, popping, or twisting, the spine and body are realigned with a gentle manual correction. This non-traditional approach to chiropractic allows for misaligned areas to be pushed or pulled back into proper position.



ART treatment you will receive from Dr. Collan Koeppen, D.C.       


He uses a gentle, manual corrective technique to realign vertebrae of the neck and spine. Combined with this, he uses Active Release Techniques to “untie knots” of scar tissue that hold the body out of place and create painful dysfunctional performance.

Dr. Koeppen has a background in personal training. He uses many different chiropractic styles and techniques, ultrasound, and computerized functional wellness tests.  

Dr. Koeppen voted as best Chiropractor at La Jolla 2012-2020 in La Jolla Village news. He is also a patent holder inventor for the “Antidote to Technology”- a traction/decompression device for a spine.
