What is Active Release Technique?

Active release technique (ART) treats the soft tissue within your body through the use of combining manipulation and movement. This technique helps you to manage your pain and has been proven to give athletes a quicker recovery for the past three decades.

ART can treat issues with muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, as well as other soft tissue injuries and conditions such as headaches and back pain.

How does it work?

It works by breaking up adhesions in certain muscles which form when there is an injury.  The adhesions are originally formed to help protect the affected muscle. However, it can take a negative turn when the adhesions bind two muscle groups together, which can cause pinched nerves, loss of flexibility or strength.

ART then helps to break up this scar tissue by promoting circulation within the muscles by then allowing a faster healing process. Our chiropractic care in Manhattan specializes in this technique.

Benefits of ART

Benefits of ART include enhanced flexibility and range of motion. The alleviating of chronic lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, running injuries, and also the reduction of scar tissue.  

ART can become a regular part of your lifestyle, as patients have this done on a common basis.  By frequently breaking up scar tissue, this can allow more comfortability throughout your body which anyone can benefit from whether you are an athlete or not.
