Active Release Techniques (ART)

Active Release is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. The treatment is not related in any way to spinal adjusting or manipulation.

Abnormal tissues, built up scar tissue and adhesions, are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatments protocols – over 500 of them – are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.

ART is not a cookie-cutter approach. The treatment is non-invasive, very safe, has virtually no side-effects and has a record for producing very good results which are often permanent.

Most conditions require between 2 and 10 visits and take between 6 and 15 minutes each. For more information on ART please visit

Conditions treated with ART that have shown an extremely high percent of success include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) & other nerve entrapments
  • Spinal Pain & Dysfunction
  • Tendonitis & other soft tissue inflammatory disorders of the hand, wrist & elbow, shoulder (including rotator cuff), hip, knee, ankle & foot (including plantar fasciitis)
  • Sciatica, TMJ, recurrent sprains & strains, including recurring ankle sprains
