There may also be numbness, tingling, or weakness if a nerve becomes involved. ART sessions are usually most effective when paired with chiropractic manipulation in Calgary AB.

What is Active Release Technique in Calgary AB?

Active release technique [ART] is a soft tissue massage technique that is movement-based and facilitates the healing process of muscles, tendons, ligaments, facia, and nerves. Soft tissue injuries cause scar tissue to form. The scar tissue sticks to adjacent structures in your body, restricting your range of motion or causing pain. This buildup of scar tissue may cause compression of nerves or blood vessels. These injuries do not always appear on radiographic studies [such as X-Rays or CT scans]. However, they often are accompanied by chronic pain or tightness.

An ART provider is an all-in-one specialist in muscles, nerves, ligaments, fascia, and joints.

  • Athletes [professional or amateur]
  • Repetitive motion injuries
