ART Now In MQT
Tight muscles, weakness or limited range of motion keeping you from taking the next step in your journey to a healthy lifestyle? Active Release Technique (ART) may be your answer. One of the fastest growing treatment methods for soft tissue, ART was specifically created to treat the damage associated with overuse injuries. Conditions such as sciatica, knee problems, tennis elbow, planter fasciitis, shoulder problems, shin splints, and carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated naturally, preventing surgery, by this patented, state-of-the-art technique.
ART works by breaking up dense scar tissue adhesions and preventing them from reforming. Adhesions limit normal range of motion and cause abnormal binding between muscles resulting in pain, stiffness and reduced flexibility. The goal of ART is to restore normal range of motion and “glide” between muscular tissue and nerves.
Unlike massage therapy or other myofascial release techniques, ART has over 500 specific protocols for treating almost every muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia and nerve in the body. Whether it’s used to help treat stiff muscles, workplace related injuries or boost your athletic performance to the next level, Active Release Technique is worth looking into.
