Active Release Technique

Effective Pain Relief With Active Release Technique (ART)

Overused muscles and tissues can lead to a variety of conditions and symptoms, which can affect the way you move and function in your daily life. Most of the time, we can’t help but overuse certain muscles, due to the requirements of our stressful daily routines. Unfortunately this can cause injuries and/or an accumulation of micro-damage to the affected tissues. This promotes the formation of dense scar tissue, which can negatively affect the surrounding healthy tissue. As a result, muscles become weaker and shorter, tendons become irritated, and nerves may get pinched or trapped. This can lead to the development of a number of painful conditions, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • chronic back, neck, shoulder, and leg pain
  • muscle and ligament tears
  • damaged or compressed nerves
  • headaches
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • shin splints
  • plantar fascitis
  • tennis or golf elbow
  • sciatica

Fortunately, this can be treated quickly and effectively with Active Release Technique, which is an innovative tissue-focused massage technique that precisely targets the affected muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments.

What Should I Expect From The Procedure?

An ART therapy session is conducted by your physician, who uses his or her hands to feel and evaluate the affected area. Once abnormal or inflamed tissue is detected, it is treated with precisely applied pressure or tension, combined with specific patient movements.

This treatment is an excellent alternative to conventional medication or surgery, as it promotes your body’s inherent capacity for healing and self correction. While results will vary on an individual basis, most patients report full recovery and permanent pain relief after completing treatment.
