  • Active Release Techniques (ART)

    Active Release Techniques (ART) is a innovative treatment that is helping world-class athletes, active individuals, and persons of all walks of life.  ART is designed to deal with the scar tissue and adhesions that build up as result of soft tissue injury.

    Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART therapist uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

    Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, iliotibial band syndrome, rotator cuff syndrome, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, patellar tendonitis, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be treated with ART.

    ART is also used to treat post-surgical scar tissue and peripheral nerve entrapments like carpal tunnel syndrome.
