ART® - Active Release Technique
Art, Active Release Technique, Active Relase Techniques
ART is a state of the art soft tissue system/movement based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Do you suffer from:
Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, tennis elbow? These are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common - they are usually a result of overused muscles.
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
-acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
-accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
-not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue surrounding the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely which leads to muscles becoming shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causing tendonitis, and possible nerve entrapment. This can cause reduced range of motion, strength and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and/or weakness.
What can you expect?
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. Our ART® practitioner evaluates the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
