    Active Release

    What is Active Release?

    Active Release Technique (A.R.T.®) is a soft tissue system that is used in the treatment of soft tissue injuries. SOme injuries may result from trauma such as whiplash or repetitive movements from over-use of a muscle group doing the repetitive activities. The concept is to locate and break down scar tissue and fascial adhesion’s that cause pain in soft tissue injuries.

    How is ART® performed?

    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 tissue to its correct tension, texture, movement and function thus eliminating symptoms.

Whether you suffer from a knee problem from running a marathon, or have upper back pain from sitting at the computer all day long, ART is effective in decreasing muscle and joint pain, tightness and stiffness.
