Active Release Technique (ART), is a manual therapy technique used by ART Certified Providers to manage and treat soft tissue injuries. ART is mostly used to treat scar tissue and adhesions between soft tissue structures that will limit tissue mobility and joint range of motion. ART doesn’t treat pain, but it helps to increase blood flow and reduce swelling and inflammation that might be the central cause for pain and discomfort.
Active Release Techniques may be used in conjunction with Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care, Graston Technique, Rolfing®, Acupuncture, and other forms of Massage.
