The aim of these procedures is to restore normal biomechanics and enhance movement between tissues, increasing function and performance. ART is effective in the treatment of overuse or repetitive use injuries, sports related injuries, sciatica, shoulder pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and a variety of other common pain syndromes. ART is “the Gold Standard of soft tissue treatment,” and requires many hours of instruction to become proficient. You can learn more at ActiveRelease.com.
