Active Release Techniques (ART) is a new and highly effective treatment for most types of soft tissue injury, whether from trauma, repetitive motion, or athletics. Anyone can benefit from an ART treatment, whether they are very active or sit at a desk most of the day. Many daily activities cause repetitive stress and lead to the formation of scar tissue and adhesions, hindering movement and function of soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves). This creates symptoms of pain, decreased range of motion, numbness, tingling, and weakness.
The core of the treatment is locating scar tissue then applying tension to the scar tissue while lengthening the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. ART returns tissue to its correct tension, texture, movement and function; thus eliminating pain and associated symptoms.
Do you lead an active lifestyle but struggle with pain?
There is a way to become pain free
Whether you're an avid runner, or just like to take a walk everyday, you shouldn't have to compromise your active lifestyle because of pain. Soft-tissue injuries are one of the most common culprits for pain and have traditionally been treated with drugs, heat, cold, rest and massage. These therapies usually provide minimal relief and only a temporary solution.
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a breakthrough in the treatment of injury and provides permanent pain relief. Even better, ART can help you avoid surgery. When soft tissue is injured, it gets stuck-or adheres-causing inflammation, scar tissue, impeded movement and even entrapped nerves. Using a series of hands-on protocols, ART identifies and removes these muscular adhesions. Adhesions that go untreated often cause a chain reaction of new adhesion cycles in connected tissue structures or musculoskeletal systems that are overcompensating in response to the pain. These chronic stages of soft tissue damage are why so many of us are in pain-even if we lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
ART brings permanent resolution to many injuries previously considered untreatable, sometimes in just a few sessions. ART has a 90% success rate with such chronic problems as carpal tunnel, rotator cuff injuries, knee injuries, back pain, sciatica, headaches and many more. Over 500 specific treatment protocols are used to release the adhesions, separate the bound tissue and restore function. Through this process, the core problems that cause sharp or dull pain with inflammation, stiffness, weakness, numbness, and other physical dysfunctions are eliminated-and the pain goes away.
