What is Active Release Technique?
Overuse of muscles, especially by athletes, can cause tension, pain and disrupt the motion between the muscles and fascia (band of connective tissues). At Elite Spine & Sport, we see various overuse injuries that respond well to Active Release Technique, ART.
What is ART?
ART is a proven and patented hands-on technique to heal soft-tissue injuries. It reestablishes proper movement and alignment of muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons, and nerves. Slightly different from massage or myofascial release, we use over 500 protocols to treat affected areas.
Is ART only for athletes?
No, not at all! Anyone with scarred tissue, resulting from overuse, can benefit from ART. Patients who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, sciatica, back pain, plantar null, shoulder/knee problems, tennis elbow, and even headaches can see an improvement with ART, often times resolved permanently.
What are the benefits of ART?
Because ART is a non-surgical, soft-tissue technique, the benefits are multifold. Patients can expect to see results immediately, but multiple sessions are needed to break up the scar tissue which inhibits muscular movement and causes pain.
At Elite Spine & Sport, we employ a vast array of techniques to help ease your pain and strengthen your body. ART is just one of the many ways we can help you mitigate your pain. Call today to see how we can help you.
