Looking for input from anyone who has had ART. I developed Piriformis Syndrome about 4 months ago. At 50 years of age, I thought I learned long ago to control my ego in order to live to fight another day… but I guess I overdid my uphill interval sprints. Again. I have not run, squatted or deadlifted for about 3 months. A local chiropractor has recently been certified for ART and I have had a few sessions with him.
The sessions last for 2-3 minutes and that includes his adjustments on my SI joint which he believes is out of alignment. I have had 4 sessions with him and each has lasted 2-3 minutes. My deep tissue massage therapist spends an entire hour and at the end of a session I’m not sure who has worked harder: him or me. Is is possible to adequately perform ART in 2-3 minutes when my symptoms include discomfort in my hamstring, my glute, my piriformis, and my IT band? Please relate your ART experience to help me make a decision of how to proceed with my treatments.
