How Do Active Release Techniques Work?
The ART works by breaking the adhesions, increasing the free movement of your muscles, joints, and nerves.
During the ART sessions, the provider will locate the scar tissues, isolate the area, and manipulate it by applying controlled and precise force to break up scar tissues. In addition, it will also increase the blood flow, promoting the healing process.
ART operates in a similar pattern as the following soft tissue treatments:
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Graston Technique
- NeuroKinetic Therapy
- Dry Needling
- Fascial Distortion Model
