Active Release Techniques is a ground breaking patented soft tissue system that is administered by certified doctors to treat injured soft tissue structures in the body.
The ART soft tissue management system is based on scientific evidence that muscles, nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue develop adhesions within and between them as a result of various injuries that include: acute (sudden injury), cumulative (chronic injury) and pressure (due to poor posture). These adhesions cause the motion of muscles or joints to be altered, resulting in a wide variety of symptoms, including pain, weakness, reduced range of motion, numbness and tingling.
Why use ART Therapy Florida?
The concept of the technique is based on scientific literature that fibrosis (scar tissue) is laid down in areas of trauma or overuse impeding different muscle layers and nerves from sliding on one another which should normally occur. When adhesions between muscle layers occur, pain and tightness are felt. These changes cause decreased range of motion and affect how the body moves resulting in pain or decreased performance.
ART Therapy is the most proficient technique that can release the adhesions and restore pain free movement. This is the reason why most professional athletes and sports teams turn to ART for high level treatment.
