Active Release Technique
Muscle and joint injuries do not happen independently, in other words you never have one without the other. That is why it is so important to treat both the joints and the muscles!
Active Release Technique (ART) is a form myofascial release that was specifically designed to treat soft tissue structures including muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. This type of therapy allows the practitioner to treat the entire injured area allowing for increased range of motion and function and decreased pain symptoms.
ART uses ranges of motion with manual therapy to achieve effective rehabilitation of dysfunctional areas of the body. Active Release Technique treats problem areas by creating movement between adhesed and restricted myofascial structures.
ART is practiced all across the world and is well known for its role treating IRON MAN.
There are over 700 specified protocols to treat almost every single muscle, tendon and ligament in the body. So whether you are suffering from sore neck muscles due to sitting at your work desk or nursing a strained hamstring, this is the perfect therapy for you!
Defining Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented manual therapy system. It is distinguished by its great effectiveness in treating musculoskeletal injuries and the pain that accompanies them.
Adhesions in the muscles and fascia are results of repetitive stresses due to poor posture, work and sports activities, and traumatic injuries.
These traumas produce inflammation, small tears, scar tissue (fibrosis), hypoxia (lack of oxygen), weakness, tension and adhesions in the myofacial tissues.
ART can help release the excessive scar tissue that binds tissues that need to move freely. As a result, it is possible to restore the function, texture, and movement of these tissues.
