Learn about the healing power of A.R.T. from our Irvine Chiropractors
Active Release Technique(R), 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. Basically, ART treats problems associated with overused muscles. Overused muscles can be the result of pulls, tears, collisions, or a lack of oxygen reaching the muscles. Overused muscles can also be the result of small injuries which accumulate small tears in the muscles over time (micro-trauma). In all these cases, scar tissue may start building up, causing a host of problems; muscles become shorter and weaker, nerves can become trapped and tendons may tense up causing tendinitis. These conditions cause reduced range of motion, loss of muscular strength, and pain. For those experiencing a trapped nerve, your symptoms may also include tingling (pins and needles), numbness, and feelings of weakness when using certain muscle groups.
If you are experiencing headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splits, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fascitis, knee problems, or tennis elbow and you live in Irvine, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, or the surrounding areas, then you have access to providers that can help restore your body back to optimum health.
