Active Release Techniques
Active Release Techniques (ART) are soft tissue treatment techniques that alleviate tissue tension by removing adhesions that can develop due to damage from overuse. Common symptoms like muscle weakness, numbness, tenderness, tingling and burning sensations can develop if the condition is not addressed.
Who may use it?
ART therapy is used in managing lower back pain, shoulder pain, frozen shoulders, tension headaches, or other medical issues such as shin splints, tennis elbow, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
What are the benefits of active release techniques?
Relieve tight muscles:
ART therapy sessions help ease tense muscles and nerve trigger points, alleviating joint stress to begin the healing process and improve your quality of life.
The procedure has proven effective, and it is entirely natural. It works like deep tissue massage, and patients experience relief of tension and pain in joints and muscles without using medications.
Our highly qualified practitioners are trained in ART therapy and make use of precise hand-and-finger-massage movements to address an individual’s particular conditions and needs.
Wellspring Health Center also integrates other physical therapy treatments with ART. The Active Release Technique (ART) is a popular and effective treatment for soft tissue injuries, including those of muscles, tendons, blood vessels, nerves, and ligaments.
