What is Active Release Techniques®?
Active Release Techniques® is a patented state of the art soft tissue movement based massage technique that is proven to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Active Release Treatments separates, releases, and stretches the connective tissue adhesion's, restores vascular and lymph circulation, and increases your range of motion, flexibility, and strength.
Active Release Treatments have proven especially valuable to athletes from the professional and beginner to the employee confined to working within a restrictive workstation. Ninety percent of the time, patients with acute or long standing muscular strain, sprain injuries, IT Band Syndrome, Achilles injuries, sciatica therapy, experience complete recovery in a short period of time.
Conditions Treated with ART® and chiropractic care:
Back pain (upper, middle, lower)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
IT Band Syndrome
Post operative scar tissue management
Chiropractic adjustments and manual therapies
What to expect
Throughout an initial examination, we focus on the patient's specific problem areas, using Active Release to diagnose the presence of abnormal inflammation and scar tissue adhesion. We then discuss finding and recommendations for treatments with the patient.
Recommendations include what kind of treatments are necessary, how many treatments are needed, and the prognosis of a complete recovery. We treat the affected area by using Active Release -- a unique combination of pressure, tension, and motion to reduce the scar tissue adhesion's, which are causing your pain.
Many patients experience complete recovery in 5-10 visits, although this depends on the severity of their injuries. Because of the soft tissue component, where other treatments fail, ART® succeeds.
As one of New York Cities highest credential certified ART® providers, you can be assured that you are in one of the best hands the field has to offer.
