What is Active Release Technique Therapy?

Active Release Technique (ART) is a soft tissue therapy designed to rid injured areas of scar tissue. Here at Injury Relief  Chiropractic, we incorporate ART in our treatment of musculoskeletal disorders to remedy injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, tennis elbow, headaches, and back pain. All of these conditions tend to have one thing in common: the result of an overused muscle.

We are all prone to over-using muscles while at work and in our daily lives, no matter the occupation. Overuse Syndrome is common in our society. As a result of our work duties, athletic events and daily lives, we are all at risk of developing this syndrome due to repetitive stresses on the same structures. These stresses may not be painful at first, but the body learns to compensate for long-term use resulting in the soft tissue adapting and changing over time.

How Active Release Technique Therapy (ART) Works?

Targeted Manipulation: ART employs precise hand movements to locate and treat abnormal tissues, breaking down adhesions and scar tissue.

Restoring Mobility: By releasing tension in affected areas, ART aims to restore normal movement patterns, alleviating pain and improving flexibility.
