ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES (ART®)
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES
Soft tissue techniques are used when a muscle, tendon, or ligament is overly tight, painful, or does not function properly.
ART is a movement-based manual therapy technique that addresses muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It involves breaking up adhesions in the soft tissues by having the patient go through various motions while the doctor applies a very specific pressure to the area being treated. It has been proven to be highly effective in treating many repetitive overuse injuries such as IT band syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, shin splints and even headaches.
