Active Release Technique (ART)

Antonelli Family Chiropractic & Physical Therapy Center
Active Release Technique is a type of soft tissue therapy that helps relieve tight muscles and muscular adhesions, greatly reducing joint stress and muscular pain.
Pain and tightness is usually the result of overused muscles, which contribute to scar tissue formation, tears, pulls, strains and inflammation. ART is a natural treatment that targets connective tissues, major muscle groups, tendons and ligaments. Active Release Technique restores normal mobility between muscular tissue and nerves.
Active Release Technique helps patients with:
- Lower back pain
- Shin splints
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tension headaches
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Shoulder strains, including frozen shoulder
- Tennis elbow
- Sciatic nerve pain
Decrease joint stress and muscle tension:
Active Release Technique incorporates similar techniques as deep tissue massage and myofascial release because it works by manipulating soft tissue, thereby reducing stress placed on joints and nerves. Many patients begin to feel relief just after a few sessions, as the inflammation and tension in the body begins to decrease. They experience increased range of motion, less pain, increased muscle strength, and decreased numbness and tingling.
Relieving tight muscles and trigger points can help in reducing joint stress. ART can help activate muscles that have been ‘turned off’ due to injury and behaviors to decrease pain.
