Active Release Technique (A.R.T.®) is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that diagnoses and permanently treats soft tissue injuries. These injuries can be a result of repetitive stress or trauma such as whiplash or from over-use of the same muscle group doing the same activities. It is a non-invasive healing procedure that locates and breaks down scar tissue and adhesions that cause soft-tissue injuries.
It is a method of healing injuries by locating scar tissue, then applying tension to the scar tissue while lengthening muscles, tendons and ligaments. ART returns the tissue to its correct tension, texture, movement, and function thus eliminating symptoms.
These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach - treatment and specific moves incorporated depend on the evaluation results of the patient.
ART is a highly successful treatment not only for athletes, but to anyone who leads an active life, sits at a computer all day, or enjoys gardening. Many daily activities cause repetitive stress and the formation of scar tissue, which hinders the movement and function of soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves). This creates symptoms of pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, numbness, and weakness.
If you suffer from any of the following ailments, ART may be the solution for you.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
ART has a 90% success rate in treating these symptoms permanently.
