A.R.T. is a technique designed at restoring function and movement of muscles and joints. It involves treatment of OVERUSED muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Daily activities such as sitting at a computer for 8 hours a day, baking, playing on our IPADs, lifting weights or playing golf…. all these activities can lead to overused muscles and eventually scar tissue. Once scar tissue forms, it can trap nerves, limit mobility, cause muscle pain and reduce our function whether it’s time to use our body for work or for recreation.
Active Release Technique is a treatment where the practitioner examines and assesses the movement and tightness of nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments and then applies tension with a specific movement. This is intended at reducing and eliminating scar tissue hence reducing pain and increasing movement.
The following are some conditions that benefit from A.R.T:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Postural Stress to the upper back/neck/shoulders due to prolonged computer work
