What is Active Release Techniques® (ART) Florida?
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.

I can finally get back to my life, Thanks Team!”
“The team at Integrated Medical Center helped me decrease knee pain that I was experiencing for over 2 years and was affecting my golf game. The knee even started feeling stiff throughout the day. Using all the amazing pieces of equipement in the clinic they were able to decrease my pain and improve the flexibility in my knee.”
“I am 56 year old female runner and have been active my whole life. As I was ramping up my miles to get ready for my next marathon I started having excruciating pain in my right foot when waking up every morning. It started affecting my overall mood let alone the pain I was feeling when running. Eventually I had to give up running and was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. I started to seek different types of therapy from a podiatrist to physical therapists I was not getting any relief. Finally after 6 months of pain and suffering, a friend of mine referred me to Integrated Medical Center and I started getting my sanity back. They performed an exam and determined the cause of my pain. Yes, I had inflammation in the area of my foot but the cause of the problem was my hips were tight and it affected my gait! They took a team approach to treat my issues. First, in order to decrease inflammation I opted not to inject my foot with cortisone but instead inject a safe all natural blend of minerals to help reduce the inflammation. They used Active Release Techniques to help improve my hip and low back range of motion as well as use shockwave therapy to stimulate healing in my foot. Amazingly after the first injection I started getting relief in my foot and after 3 sessions of ART my hips felt looser and I was able to start running again!!! Thanks IMC for all your help.”
