Active Release Techniques or ART is a soft tissue treatment/movement based technique used to alleviate pain and promote healing in muscles, joints, and nerves. When administered by a trained professional, ART has been proven to break down adhesions between nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. With a success rate of over 90%, ART has become one of the most sought after treatments for soft tissue treatment in the world today.
If you suffer from one of the following ailments, ART treatment may help you find relief:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: CTS is a disorder in which the Median nerve becomes trapped somewhere along its length. This nerve entrapment causes severe pain, numbness, and weakness in the effected area. By incorporating ART treatment along the nerve path, many individuals experience relief from symptoms.
- Arthritis: Degenerative arthritis can involve excessive wear and tear on the inside of a joint. Pain caused by this damage can radiate to soft tissue surrounding the affected joint. Using ART on arthritic joints and surrounding tissue can alleviate pain and symptoms that occur as a result of arthritis. In many cases, ART can restore most of the function in arthritic joints
- Headaches: Headaches that radiate pain from the back of the head to the temples or front of the head respond well to ART that is concentrated on the neck muscles and moved upward toward the back of the head and temples.
- Sports Injuries: Hip pain, IT band syndrome, knee pain, patello-femoral syndrome, shin splints, and tendinitis all respond well to ART treatment.
