Active Release Techniques

Active Release Technique treatment is a hands-on touch and case management system that allows a practitioner to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue refers to muscle, tendon, fasciae and nerves. Most conditions can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they often result from injury to over-used muscles.

Specific injuries that apply are:

  • Cervico-genic headaches
  • General muscle strains
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Peripheral nerve entrapment
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Sciatic symptoms
  • Motor vehicle injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Lateral/medial epicondylitis
  • Knee injuries

How do overuse injuries occur?

Acute injuries (pulls, tears, collisions, etc), accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma), not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia). Response to ART treatment Strength, speed and endurance are expected to improve within the first few visits. Symptoms are often duplicated during treatment and are usually relieved during the first or second treatment.
