Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.) is a collection of over 500 specialized, movement-based, soft tissue treatment protocols developed by a chiropractor. A.R.T. is a highly effective and efficient hands-on treatment procedure for inflamed, irritated, and adhered soft tissue structures. Soft tissue includes: muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and fascia. These structures often become overused due to several reasons including: life-style factors and specific sport requirements, which lead to painful and dysfunctional tissue.
Over time, improper or dysfunctional tissue can create joint compression and altered movement patterns leading to pain. A.R.T. has quickly become one of the leading treatment protocols for collegiate, professional, and Olympic level athletes world-wide. Regardless of athletic ability, many individuals experience adaptive changes within their soft tissues, often leading to pain. ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic’s chiropractic doctors are trained in A.R.T. to better treat your array of pains and tissue dysfunction in the timeliest manner!
