ART – Active Release Technique®
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue movement based technique that addresses muscular and nerve entrapment issues that can contribute to acute or chronic pain in athletes or any people who have strained or spastic muscles. It uses an active range of motion on the client’s part to work deeper into the treated area and allows the client to control the intensity and tension of the treatment. Works great for treating any muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia, or nerve entrapment. Many injuries are a result of overuse and this technique does a great job at targeting those muscles and restoring full range and function. ART® is performed using the doctor’s thumb/fingers only, without any other tools or equipment.
ART® is an excellent method to treat problems like neck pain, rotator cuff problems, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, “mouse problems,” psoas tightness, lower back pain, sciatica/piriformis syndrome, hip imbalances, knee problems, ankle injuries, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis and tight muscles in general.
