Active Release Technique is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fascitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and often permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common, they are often caused by overused muscles. When an injury occurs to the body, the body responds by producing tough, dense scar tissue in the area of injury. This scar tissues binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons cause tendinitis, and nerves become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel numbness and tinglling. The ART practitioner uses there hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Injured tissues are treated by combining specific directed tension with specific patient passive and active movements. activerelease.com
