A.R.T. (Active Release Technique) in Wichita, KS

A.R.T. (Active Release Technique) is the progression of an older and comparable approach generalized as “pin and stretch.” A.R.T. is a highly effective and efficient hands-on treatment procedure consisting of over 500 different movements to treat soft tissue structure(s).

Even though they are similar, A.R.T. is utilized by chiropractors who create tension and compression, via thumb(s), instead of a generalized hand contact as seen in “pin and stretch.”
