Active Release Technique® (ART) in New York City
At Manhattan Sports Therapy, Dr. Nemirovsky has advanced training in the use of Active Release Technique®(ART) for soft tissue mobilization. Designed to repair dysfunctions of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves, Active Release Technique® is a patented and highly effective movement-based therapy.
Dr. Nemirovsky’s expert integration of Active Release Technique®, a state-of-the-art soft tissue system, can quickly and permanently correct a wide array of injuries and musculoskeletal problems such as:
Most soft tissue injuries are a direct result of overuse and wear and tear. Damage or injury changes the quality of soft tissue making it fibrotic and adhesive, resulting in mobility restrictions and pain. Ultimately, dense scar tissue may develop as the body attempts to repair itself.
While scar tissue is a normal part of recovery, it must be supported by proper therapeutic care to prevent permanent damage, joint dysfunction, and constant pain. Dr. Nemirovsky’s use of ART helps facilitate normal tissue movement during the healing process, breaking up scar tissue and preventing muscles from shortening or weakening and reducing tension on tendons.
During ART therapy, Dr. Nemirovsky will conduct a thorough examination of the affected tissues. He will evaluate tissue texture, tightness, tenderness, and temperature before applying precisely targeted tension combined with calculated patient movements.
Active Release Technique® is highly successful in reducing pain symptoms, including numbness and tingling, while improving range of motion, strength, and stability.
