Active Release Techniques® (ART)

As part of your ARTphysical therapy treatment, Active Release Techniques® (ART) is a soft-tissue mobilization technique that treats conditions such as headaches, back pains, plantar fasciitis, and knee problems, which are often associated with overused muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.

ART-certified physical therapists use a hands-on technique involving your body's natural motion.

Persistent pain and restriction of motion can be caused by a build-up of scar tissue after an injury, affecting the body’s soft tissue.  Such injuries often do not show up in x-rays, which make them difficult to diagnose and treat with traditional methods.  Trained to identify and treat a variety of soft-tissue conditions, ART-certified physical therapists use a hands-on technique involving your body’s natural motion to break up scar tissue and restore motion to affected areas.

An Active Release Techniques certified therapist can treat any soft-tissue injury including muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerve entrapments of the upper extremity, lower extremity, and/or spine.
