What You Need To Know About Active Release Technique

ARTActive Release Technique, commonly known as ART, is a highly-skilled therapy which has been developed to treat the problems with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. It is highly effective and not at all invasive.

ART treats problems associated with overused muscles. This condition with the muscles is the result of pulls, tears, collisions, or a lack of oxygen reaching the muscles. Overused muscles can also be the result of small injuries, in which small tears accumulate in the muscles over time. In all these cases, scar tissue may start building up. Scar tissue build up can cause a long list of problems; muscles become shorter and weaker, nerves can become trapped and tendons may tense up causing tendinitis.

When these conditions from scar tissue build up, they can lead to a reduced range of motion, loss of muscular strength, and pain. For those experiencing a trapped nerve, your symptoms may also include tingling, numbness, and feelings of weakness when using certain muscle groups.

Active Release Technique specifically locates and treats the scar tissue adhesions that accumulate in the muscles that cause pain and redistrict normal movement, flexibility, and stability in your joints.
