What is Active Release Technique? Active Release Technique (ART) is a state of the art, patented, soft tissue technique for injuries in the soft tissue—muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, joints capsules, and nerves.
Who needs ART? Anyone who is experiencing limited range of motion, tightness, pain and has changes in normal movement patterns at work or sport. Some common problems include: headaches, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, sciatica, knee pain, and plantar fasciitis.
What happens to the tissue during ART? Abnormal tissue (adhesion) is treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. The doctor uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tension, and movement of the soft tissue.Scar tissue (adhesion) is often the underlying component to injuries, whether the injury is acute/chronic, traumatic or due to overuse.
What does ART feel like? There is moderate and significant pressure to the tissue as we glide and activate the muscle in and out of its full range of motion. The doctor uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tension, and movement of the soft tissue.
Our niche is ART. All of our chiropractic physicians are certified in full body Active Release Technique. We are soft tissue and body bio-mechanic nerds; we thrive on solving faulty movement patterns through the use of ART.
