Home / Portfolio / Active Release Therapy

Active Release Therapy (ART)© is a soft tissue technique that focuses on treating problems with muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.  The practitioner uses their hands in order to evaluate the tightness, tenderness and overall movement of the muscles, nerves, ligaments and tendons.  Once a problem has been identified in a structure, a tension is then applied with a specific movement based on the functional anatomy of the injured tissue in question.  It is effective treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, knee injuries, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, tennis elbow, neck pain and nerve irritations.
