What are Active Release Techniques?
Active Release Techniques® (ART) is a noninvasive system for treating soft tissue injuries that relies upon targeted, movement-based massage techniques to achieve results. Soft tissue injuries are frequently reoccurring injuries, and they are most often caused by overuse or repetitive activities. Damaged muscles, tendons and ligaments resulting in chronic pain, diminished range of motion and elasticity, and a decrease in oxygen due to diminished blood supply. Through a thorough physical examination, we are able to pinpoint and treat the injured area improve mobility, reduce pain and speed up healing times. Today, ART is used by medical practitioners and athletes around the world.
How Do Active Release Techniques Work?
Over time tissues lose mobility, they become shorter and weaker. Tendonitis and chronic nerve pain may also develop.
Every ART patient has a treatment plan that’s tailored to their needs, using the ART treatment protocol of more than 500 moves that are unique to ART.
