The Active Release Technique is a soft tissue treatment administered through a series specialized movement techniques. By manually stimulating the area of injury, stiffness or scarring, tension is released and circulation is stimulated in the muscles, ligaments and nerves. The Active Release Technique can be especially effective for those patients suffering from conditions that include sciatica, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome and many others. This treatment can also be used to address inflexibility from internal scarring and tears and trauma that have affected the soft tissues.
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
