Sports Injury and
Active Release and Manual Therapy for Soft Tissue Injury
Active Release Techniques® (ART) is a soft tissue technique that involves a gentle yet firm contact to a painful or injured tissue while it is moved either actively or passively through its full range of motion. There are specific protocols for muscle, fascia, many of body’s ligaments and nerves designed to decrease pain and improve function. Conditions that commonly respond to ART include headache, back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, shoulder pain, knee pain and tennis elbow. This type of treatment is safe and effective.
Athletes and performers often carry out repetitive movements which make them prone to muscle imbalances and repetitive stress injuries. ART is a unique system of treatment that provides for optimum performance whether you ride, run, dance, skate or ski your way to the top
