What Is Active Release Therapy?

ART is a massage technique that has gained popularity among chiropractors and their patients because it has proven to be effective in treating muscles that have been overworked. When used along with chiropractic care, ART is a powerful tool for helping tendons, nerves, ligaments, and muscles to recover and heal, particularly soft tissue that has been strained by repeated use. Whether you are an athlete striving to go further with your performance, or you are working a job that requires strenuous activity day in and day out, ART could be ideal for helping treat your pain and recover from injuries.

ART is a gentle approach to massage that aids in improving oxygen flow to muscles and minimizing scarring – scarring which is extremely common when muscles are injured or overworked. Because scarring usually starts right after the injury, it is normal for overworked muscles to have some scarring. But the less scarring that occurs, the more relief you will experience. ART is designed to minimize such scarring and bring back much-needed blood flow to aid in healing.

One of the most significant benefits of ART as opposed to other massage techniques is that relief can often be obtained quickly. The techniques of ART are fine-tuned, fast and efficient.

Seek ART from Qualified Providers

Getting certified in ART is an intensive process that requires an in-depth understanding of anatomy and extensive study and demonstration of the ability to use ART techniques. While most chiropractors will utilize some form of massage, electrical stimulation and trigger point therapies, none of these are the same as ART. ART is unique, which is why it is patented and those that wish to practice it must go through extensive training and certification to do so.

At Back2Health360, we are dedicated to providing the best possible care to those that we serve. We stay current on the latest in chiropractic care, and we continue to train in methods that are the top in the field. ART is one of the most respected soft tissue manipulation practices in chiropractic care, which is why our team has taken the time and put in the effort to gain an official qualification in the technique.
