AK Approach

Factors which would cause local malfunctioning of the rib attachments are looked for. These are usually imbalances of the muscles that attach to the ribs. The involved muscles are examined and tested for the specific treatment that will reduce the abnormal function of the muscle and normalize the pull of the muscle. Treatment is then aimed at normalizing the function of the ribs and the spine. Factors that will reduce inflammation and speed the recovery are then tested for. Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition. A specific program for your needs is created.
