Services | Active Release Techniques®
Active Release Techniques (ART®) is a patented soft tissue management system designed to identify and treat scar tissue and adhesions that develop in muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. When these structures become injured at work, a sporting event or from repetitive overuse (ie, carpal tunnel), dense fibrotic or leathery scar tissue and adhesions can form. Repetitive stress, muscle tension or spasm causes hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to soft tissues. This leads to inflammation and the formation of dense scar tissue resulting in poor joint mechanics and loss of full function.
Our bodies own scar tissue removal systems are slow and often times ineffective, leading to chronic repetitive injuries. Active Release Techniques® is a quick and proficient method of removing scar tissue, promoting optimal function and healthier tissue. Eighty percent of professional sports teams in the U.S. utilize ART practitioners to improve performance before events and to allow for faster healing of injuries.
