Overview of the Procedure

Active Release Technique, or ART, is a specialized manual therapy that targets soft tissue conditions. It’s a hands-on approach to assessing and treating muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves that have become restricted or injured. ART is highly effective in resolving pain and dysfunction caused by various musculoskeletal issues.

Common Reasons for the Service

ART is a versatile therapy that addresses a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Muscle Tightness and Imbalances: Whether you’re an athlete or a desk worker, muscle imbalances can lead to pain and limited mobility. ART can help identify and correct these issues.
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries: Conditions like tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and plantar fasciitis often result from repetitive movements. ART can provide relief by releasing the affected soft tissues.
  • Sports Injuries: Athletes commonly experience muscle strains, sprains, and overuse injuries. ART can speed up the healing process and restore optimal function.
  • Postural Problems: Poor posture can lead to chronic pain and discomfort. ART can help address the soft tissue imbalances that contribute to postural issues.

Benefits of the Service

The benefits of ART are numerous and include:

  • Pain Relief: ART targets the source of pain and provides long-lasting relief.
  • Improved Mobility: By releasing tight tissues, ART restores your range of motion and flexibility.
  • Enhanced Performance: Athletes can experience improved athletic performance and reduced risk of injury.
  • Accelerated Healing: ART promotes the body’s natural healing processes.
  • Non-Invasive: It’s a non-surgical and drug-free approach to wellness.

Procedure Details

During an ART session, a certified ART provider will use their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. They will then apply precise tension and movement to release adhesions and restore proper function. ART is typically performed through a series of specific movements and pressure techniques.
