Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening therapy is highly beneficial for musculoskeletal dysfunction and disorders of the nervous system.
AIS therapy will be highly beneficial for any musculoskeletal problems. More than any other modality, AIS therapy most directly benefits muscular issues. AIS has a unique approach of lengthening and unwinding muscles. When a person is suffering from a musculoskeletal issue, the muscles are shortened, contracted, or twisted. Massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture may also be helpful, but not to the same degree as AIS. In deep tissue massage, the kneading motion on twisted muscles is soothing, but the relief is often short-lived because kneading does not optimally return a muscle to its normal position and length. Chiropractic can be helpful, but adjustments will be more productive after AIS therapy. First lengthen all the muscles, then see how much better the chiropractic adjustment feels. Similarly, acupuncture treatment will be much more effective after AIS therapy. By lengthening the muscles, the acupuncture needles are able to follow a clearer pathway.
AIS therapy is most beneficial when it comes to lengthening muscles, nourishing joints, increasing range of motion, improving circulation, and reducing inflammation. These are all the essentials issues that must be addressed in musculoskeletal problems.
Muscles can become twisted by repetitive motion, injury, weakness, overuse, or aging. If a problematic muscle is not treated properly, it can stay contracted for years. This is why people can suffer from nagging injuries multiple years. At the same time, a contorted muscle can be released immediately if you use the right technique. AIS is that technique.
Muscle problems will create problems with movement. Additionally, muscles stabilize the frame for sitting or standing. Therefore, an expert in muscles will help a client with improved movement, improved body function, being more productive, and living a more active lifestyle. You do not have to have a chronic pain condition to get benefit from AIS treatment. Your age is mirrored by the flexibility in your spine. IT is common for people who receive AIS treatment to feel twenty years younger. AIS affects voluntary and involuntary muscles. Our postural muscles are involuntary. Meaning we do not consciously engage them to hold us up properly. But AIS therapy will affect those involuntary postural muscles which are essential for sitting, standing, working, playing, and living fully.

Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening therapy is highly beneficial for problems with the nervous system. Nerves and muscles work together. Nerves typically run underneath the muscles. Problems with the nervous system will be greatly improved by improving the condition of the muscle structure. An unhealthy set of muscles will be inflamed. Muscular inflammation will press into the underlying nerves and interfere with the function of the nerves. This will cause cause pain, problems in movement, and problems in proper usage of the body.
What is good for the muscles is good for the nerves. AIS therapy helps to reset nerve signals. By doing so, AIS therapy will be of great benefit to anyone suffering from a nervous system disorder. The following is an incomplete list of nervous system disorders that can be greatly benefitted by applying AIS rehabilitation.
AIS is highly beneficial for the following nervous system disorders:
- ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Nerve compression, nerve impingement
- Nerve entrapment
- Bell’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Parkinson’s disease
- Spinal cord injury
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Trigeminal neuralgia
