These conditions all have one important thing in common; they are often a result of overused muscles.
Active Release Technique® is a patented, state of the art soft-tissue system/movement based technique that uses hands-on evaluation and treatment of the muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and nerves; using over 700 specific techniques, the clinician is able to evaluate the tightness, texture and overall movement of the muscles and tissues then effectively treat the root cause.
Every ART® session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART® provider 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.
These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART®. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART® is not a cookie-cutter approach.
