Active Release Techniques (ART) is a patented, state of the art, soft tissue treatment that treats conditions involving the muscles and tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves in the body. It is an extremely effective treatment and is one of the most highly sought-after tissue treatment options in sports medicine. ART is currently utilized by every MLB and NFL team, and widely used by the United States Olympic athletes as well.
Utilizing ART allows our office to treat a wide variety of health conditions with a unique and specific approach. During an ART treatment session, the doctor will move the injured tissue through active ans passive ranges of motion while applying tension and pressure on the injured or irritated tissue. This is directed at relieving pain improving motion, and breaking up adhesions and scar tissue present in or around the tissues causing the symptoms.
Some of the most common injuries treated using ART in our office are:
- Neck / Back Pain
- Shin Splints
- Rotator Cuff Injuries / Shoulder Pain
- Runner’s Knee
- Carpal Tunnel
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Tennis Elbow
