A.R.T Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique is a type of soft tissue manipulation treatment used to break up scar tissue, also called adhesions. It is a patented massage technique where a patient moves muscles or ligaments while the practitioner applies pressure to the affected area. Doing this allows the practitioner to engage the structure as it moves beneath the pressure of their contact allowing them to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Since there are over 500 different moves that make up the treatment procedures used in ART, each treatment is unique to each patient.
ART on Levator Scapula
ART on the levator scapula to help release tension and increase range of motion.
A.R.T. on Rotator Cuff
ART infraspinatus (rotator cuff) release to increase shoulder range of motion; great for tennis players, baseball players and swimmers.
A.R.T. on Rectus Femoris
ART on the Rectus Femoris and hip flexor stretch to lengthen tight hips and help increase stride length for running.
A.R.T. of the Quadriceps
