Active Release Techniques

Active Release Technique (ART®) is a patented manual soft tissue treatment that is effective for a broad range of soft tissue injuries for which most conventional treatments (physical therapy, massage, medication, surgery, and chiropractic) have failed. The goal of Active Release Technique® is to restore optimal texture, motion, and function to soft tissue and release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels.

Our specialized techniques allow us to better detect and treat these areas because we may use instruments that glide along a patient’s muscle, tendons or ligaments, with the right amount of pressure to detect just where the scar tissue or restrictions are located. Since our body parts are connected in what is referred to as the “kinetic chain”, the clinician is able to follow that kinetic chain, effectively uncovering the cause of the problem, then treating the cause and the area of pain or restriction.
