Active release technique minneapolis

dr andy cook

Dr. Andy Cook has a passion for getting people to move the way they want to because he feels that regular movement is critical to their quality of life. He has had an interest in the way people move since chiropractic school, but he has planned to work in some aspect of healthcare for many years, out of a drive to help others live the lives they want. Dr. Cook feels that chiropractic and active rehabilitation work together, empowering the patient to achieve faster, more sustainable results, starting with the least invasive intervention possible. He doesn’t stick to one or two protocols to treat all back pain and neck pain the same, rather he uses many different tools, depending on what he is finding with the patient in front of him. He feels this individualized approach, which often takes time in the initial exam, greatly shortens the time the patient needs to be treated.

A few of the tools Dr. Cook uses are:

  • Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization
  • Active Release Technique
  • Selective Functional Movement Assessment
  • Kinesiology Tape, Dynamic Tape
  • Instrument-assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Chiropractic manipulation
  • Certified Functional Strength Coach
  • Nutrition coaching

dr brandon langerude

Dr. Brandon Langerude found his love for helping people use movement as medicine after a friend helped him recover from a shoulder surgery while in chiropractic school. That event shifted his focus towards an active, patient centered model of care that helps empower people to take control of their injuries and achieve reductions in pain that last. Dr. Langerude has found the first and often most important step for a fast recovery is a thorough assessment that uses movement patterns to find limitations not only in muscles and joints but also in the way we control our bodies. This means that all patients, regardless of where their pain is located, are treated as individuals with specific needs for their specific situation.

A few of the tools Dr. Langerude uses:

  • McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy
  • Active Release Technique
  • Selective Functional Movement Assessment
  • Kinesiology Tape, Dynamic Tape
  • Instrument-assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Chiropractic manipulation
  • Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician
  • Certified Functional Strength Coach
  • Nutrition coaching
