About Active Release Therapy
We are constantly pushing our bodies to the limit. Whether we are working long hours, exercising avidly, partaking in sports, or simply trying to keep up with every day life, we are harder on our bodies than ever before. Many daily activities cause repetitive stress and the formation of scar tissue, which restricts the movement and function of oft tissues. This results in pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, and numbness and weakness. Active Release Therapy (A.R.T.®) is a new approach to treating muscle, tendon, nerve, and soft tissue injury.
Why choose ART:
- Effective treatment to reduce scar tissue
- Reduces the effects of repetitive stress
- No drugs required
- Virtually no side-effects
Active Release Therapy (ART) can be effectively used to reduce scar tissue by locating the adhesions that are causing the problem, applying tension with the thumbs over these areas in the direction of the fibres, and then having the patient elongate the musculature while they continue to apply tension. By breaking up the adhesions and restoring blood flow to the tissues, the condition will steadily improve.
