ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
Active Release Technique, ART, is a patented system of soft tissue treatment. ART is a procedure that reduces adhesive scar tissue that is formed when the body repairs injuries it suffers because of repetitive motion, bumps, falls, or blows. Adhesive scar tissue can lead to pain in virtually any part of the body that's been injured, including the neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot. If you've been told you have tennis or golfer's elbow, rotator cuff tendonitis, heel spur, pinched nerves, sciatica, to name a few, then the chances are good that the cause of this pain is adhesive scar tissue. Removing adhesive scar tissue associated with soft tissue injury the primary goal of Active Release Therapy.
