Active Release Techniques® (ART) is a specialized, hands-on treatment which allows us to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries that occur in your muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels and fascia. Damage can take place within the tissues themselves from sudden trauma (tears, sprains, blunt trauma.) Other damage can accumulate over time such as in the case of carpal tunnel, tendonitis, bursitis, or poor posture.
Your body's natural response is to replace the damaged tissue with something inferior - scar tissue or fibrosis. The scarring process causes the inferior tissues to adhere to themselves as well as to other related structures, resulting in stiffness, pain, decreased function, and sometimes numbness and tingling.
ART® is the only treatment designed to effectively treat soft tissue injuries within nearly every structure of the musculoskeletal system. Combining the understanding of biomechanics and movement with hands-on applied techniques, ART® treatment protocols normalize the relationship of moving tissues to one another - thereby eliminating pain and dysfunction.
ART is highly effective for many soft tissue ailments such as:
Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
Rotator Cuff Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Iliotibial Band Syndrome
Chronic back and neck pain
Below you will find a couple of videos by Dr. Michael Leahy, founder of ART.
