Active Release Technique (ART)

ART is a soft tissue technique that uses movement to help the healing process of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART is a useful technique used at Chiropractic Center for Health in Calgary to treat the following conditions:

ART sessions are usually most effective when paired with a chiropractic manipulation.

Scar tissue is often present with repetitive injuries which prevents the soft tissue from moving correctly and healing properly. This can cause reduced range of motion and/or pain. If a nerve becomes involved, there may also be numbness, tingling and/or weakness.

The Treatment
When a problem is found, a specific protocol is chosen. A precise amount of pressure is applied aiding in the breakdown of the scar tissue. Most of these conditions occur due to one important commonality: over usage. These are usually from:

  • Pulls, tears, collisions etc. (Acute conditions)
  • Micro-trauma (Accumulation of small tears)
  • Not enough oxygen to the muscle/tendon (Hypoxia)

Dr. Aaron uses Active Release because it helps many muscle related conditions resolve quickly. Call Chiropractic Center for Health today to schedule an appointment!
