Active Release Techniques (ART®)

Patented soft tissue treatment that requires intensive training and dedication by the health care professional providing the treatment.

ART® is one of the most innovative and effective treatments available for sports injuries, soft tissue injuries and overuse conditions.

Repetitive stress, surgery or trauma can result in the build up of scar tissue and adhesions within soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and nerves). These adhesions can act like glue restricting the normal sliding motions of the various tissue layers causing symptoms of pain, numbness, weakness and reduced range of motion.

Active Release Techniques® is a non-invasive treatment method that eliminates adhesions within soft-tissues, alleviates symptoms and improves range of motion. It is a direct, hands-on treatment that uses tension and movement to return tissue to its correct texture and function.
