The Active Release Technique (ART) is a state-of-the-art soft tissue technique that can help treat muscle, nerve, fascia, tendon, and ligament issues.
When muscles and other soft tissues are over-used, this can cause pulls, tears, or collisions within the body. Each of these factors can further produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. As scar tissue, also known as "adhesions," build up, muscles become shorter and weaker and nerves become entrapped. This can cause a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is entrapped, you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
The ART system was designed as a way to restore bodily tissue to its proper range of motion and function by locating and removing adhesions. It includes over 500 specific protocols for each soft tissue structure in the body. This ensures that chiropractors can treat the root cause of the problem, and ultimately that patients will receive the highest quality care possible.
Some of the conditions that ART is well known for treating include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfer’s Elbow
- Frozen Shoulder
- Shin Splints
- Plantar Fasciitis
