At Manhattan Sports Therapy, Dr. Rolland 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.
Most soft tissue injuries are a direct result of overuse, wear, and tear. Damage or injury changes the quality of soft tissue, making it fibrotic and adhesive. This can result 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 in order 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 while improving range of motion, strength, and stability.
