About active release TECHNIQUEs (ART)
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a patented, state-of-the-art movement, soft tissue-based technique developed to treat injuries of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Injuries and constant repetitive strain cause your body to produce scar tissue. This tissue binds down muscles, tendons and nerves, preventing them from moving freely. Muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons increases, and nerves can become entrapped, resulting in reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain. By combining precisely direct tension with specific patient movement, ART restores these tissues to their optimal lengths. By integrating ART with other forms of physiotherapy, it is possible to restore normal mobility, flexibility and strength. This unique blend of treatment styles deliver accelerated recovery times and decreased risk of future injury.
