Active release technique is a, powerful soft tissue diagnostic and treatment system used to manage problems involving muscles, ligament, connective tissue, and nerves (soft tissue). Headaches, muscle strains, recurrent muscle pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, knee pain and shoulder problems are but a few of the many conditions we treat using ART.
Who can benefit from ART treatment?
Since ART providers are qualified to diagnose and treat over 400 structures, we see a broad range of injuries and conditions. ART providers treat professional and amateur athletes, people injured due to work place or motor vehicle accidents, and people who develop pain throughout their normal daily activities.
Common conditions treated with ART are listed to the right.

Releasing and eliminating these adhesions is what makes ART successful.
Does ART treatment hurt and how long does it take?
If any discomfort is experienced with this treatment, it is usually described as a ‘good hurt’. In many cases, patients report significant improvement after one treatment. The length of time required to eliminate the problem or reach “maximum therapeutic benefit” varies. Some conditions resolve vary quickly (within several visits) while others can take significantly longer.
