Active Release Technique


Within ProHealth Chiropractic we provide Active Release Techniques (ART®) which is a patented hands on soft tissue treatment that allows us to locate and break up scar tissue following injury.

It is considered the gold standard treatment for soft tissue and sports injuries because of its very quick results and impact on performance.

The video will give short but accurate description of this great technique.

Every ART® session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. We use our 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.

These treatment protocols with over 500 specific moves are unique to ART®. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART® is not a shot gun approach where 1 treatment fits all.

Many situations require ART due to over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) which can deviate from normal in three important ways:

  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

You will be pleased to learn that many patients respond well, usually seeing a significant improvement in 4-6 treatments.

The goals of ART® are simple, to increase the blood flow to the injured area, break down scar tissue and to restore the normal movement of the muscle or joint thereby speeding up the rate of healing.
