Guelph Active Release Technique at Guelph Rehab Centre
The “Gold” standard in advanced soft tissue treatment. Effective for both acute and chronic injuries to muscle, tendons and ligaments as well as nerve entrapment conditions.
A.R.T. (Active Release Techniques) is one of the most sought after advanced soft tissue treatments in the world. It is an effective treatment solution for acute and chronic injuries to muscle, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
ART is the gold standard in soft tissue treatment and when performed by a certified ART provider it has up to a 90% success rate and results can typically be felt after just a few treatments.
The Benefits of ART
The fundamental benefits of ART are pain reduction, increased strength and flexibility.
Art is designed to reduce the injury in the affected area by breaking down tension, adhesions and scar tissue while restoring strength and flexibility. This allows patients to resume their activity quicker.
With reduced tension, ART enables the muscles to heal naturally. Along with proper home care and education, ART will help prevent future injury and relapse.
How does it Work?
Essentially each session is a one-on-one combination of assessment and therapy.
The ART practitioner first examines the restricted tissues then, using a series of specific movements and precisely directed tension, works the soft tissue back to the normal texture, tension and length.
