Active Release Therapy

All people experience repetitive strain due to their job, hobbies and home responsibilities.  Theses tasks over time can form scar tissue, reduce range of motion and decreased function of soft tissues in the body.  Repetitive strain injuries result over time due to acute traumas, micro trauma and decreased oxygen supply. Active Release Therapy helps improve function and restore tissue health.

What is Active Release Therapy?

Active Release Technique (ART), or Active Release Therapy is a treatment technique used to locate and quickly resolve soft tissue injuries.

The treatment focuses on finding and removing scar tissues in the body.  This scar tissue is found in both acute and chronic conditions affecting muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia. In our treatments we utilize movement and manual therapy to remove restrictions, improve mobility and reduce pain.

Naturally as we age there is an increased amount of scar tissue in our body.  This is through the accumulation of years of acute traumas and any repetitive actions we did through our lives.  The reduction in function can alter you movements patterns and ranges of motion which lead to a repetitive strain injury.
