About Active Release Techniques (ART)
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a patented and advanced system of diagnosis and manual treatment for soft-tissue injuries. “Soft-tissue” refers primarily to muscle, tendon, fascia, and nerves. ART is specifically suited to treat cumulative and repetitive strains, postural strains, sports injuries and general “wear and tear”. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee sprains and strains, tendonopathies, shin splints, golfer’s and tennis elbow, ilio-tibial band friction syndrome, rotator cuff strains, piriformis syndromes, to name a few, are some of the conditions that can be resolved quickly, and often permanently, with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: that is, they often result from injury to over-used muscles.
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. ART is unique in its systematic approach to patient and tissue tolerance because patients can control their active movement during treatment. These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.
