Every Active Release Therapy (ART) session is a combination of examination and treatment. The Active Release Therapy (ART) provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
What Does Active Release Technique Treat?
Chiropractors use ART to treat pain and discomfort caused by injury to:
Tendons and ligaments:
Stretching and trauma can cause injuries to tendons and ligaments, leading to pain and a restricted range of motion.
Inflammations like plantar fasciitis can cause pain and stiffness in the connective tissue (fascia) that supports muscles and organs.
Strains, repetitive motion, poor posture, and trauma can cause injury to muscles in your neck, back, shoulder, back, and legs.
