Active Release Technique

By going beyond spinal bones, ART allows us to pinpoint and resolve soft tissue problems effectively. This technique has shown remarkable results, especially when it comes to relieving muscular tension and trigger points around the neck, such as the trapezius and scalene muscles.

What to Expect

Dr. Martin will assess the texture, tightness, and movement of your muscles, fascia, tendons, and ligaments during your evaluation. If scar tissue is present, we can easily detect it since it hampers proper soft tissue mobility.

Scar tissue can lead to reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and even pain. In some cases, nerve tissue may become trapped, causing tingling, numbness, and weakness.

Once problem areas are identified, a precise amount of pressure is applied directly to the site of your injury. These manual maneuvers have yielded excellent results for the neuromuscular system, encompassing muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
Patients have reported significant improvements in various conditions, including:

These conditions often share a common denominator: overused muscles. That’s why we rely on ART’s proven, state-of-the-art soft tissue system to help resolve muscle-related issues quickly and permanently.

Treatment sessions typically last one to two minutes and can be seamlessly integrated with other modalities like ultrasound or interferential current. Many patients who wake up with a kinked neck find that tension persists in adjacent neck muscles even after adjusting the neck vertebrae. In such cases, ART often provides resolution in just one visit.
