Active Release Technique (ART®) is a patented manual soft tissue treatment system that has been shown to be effective for a broad range of soft tissue injuries when most conventional treatments (physical therapy, massage, medication, surgery, & chiropractic) have failed. for a broad range of soft tissue injuries.
The goal of Active Release Technique® is to restore optimal texture, motion, and function of the soft tissue and release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels. This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions or fibrosis in the soft tissues via the application of specific protocols. Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion, or constant pressure or tension. ART® eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions.[/text_output]
