Logo of ART Active Release

Active Release Technique (ART) is a soft tissue therapy used to relieve pain associated with chronic conditions or injuries. Developed over 30 years ago to treat high performance athletes, ART combines applied tension with patient movements, making it one of the most innovative and effect treatments available.

Here are some of the top benefits of ART:

Increases Flexibility
By relaxing muscles naturally and reducing tough adhesions around muscles and joints, ART can help increase flexibility.

Treatment for Sciatica
The sciatic nerve runs down the leg, hip, thigh, knee, calf and all the way down to the foot. ART treats sciatica by restoring flexibility to the nerve.

Reduces Lower Back Pain
ART helps symptoms of lower back pain by breaking up scar tissue and releasing compressed nerves.

Injury Prevention and Improves Performance
ART can promote faster muscle recovery and improve performance by restoring normal muscle and connective tissue function.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
Active Release Technique can be an effective treatment for pain due to nerve compression associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Increases Range of Motion
ART can help improve range of motion and mobility in those with musculoskeletal disorders and after injuries.

Headache Pain Relief 
By targeting the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck, shoulders and upper back, ART provides effective pain relief associated with headaches and migraines.
