Meet the Doctor

Dr. James P. Matchett


Certified Athletic Trainer

ART® & Graston Practitioner

Dr. Matchett practices both Active Release and Graston Techniques.  These techniques assist soft tissue mobilization that breaks down scar tissue and fascial restrictions and are also used where limited mobility/strength and muscle atrophy are present.  Both Active Release Techniques (ART) and Graston are specially designed to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation by applying precise direct tension to areas needing treatment, often with immediate relief. 

These techniques offer many advantages and benefits:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
  • Allows patients to remain on the job
  • Reduces the need for splints, braces and job-site modifications
  • Contributes to the reduction of labor and healthcare costs

Dr. James Matchett is a licensed Chiropractor serving Salisbury, Maryland/Eastern Shore and having been in Northern Virginia community since 1998.
