What is Active Release Technique?
What your chiropractors in Oswego, IL, want you to know about Active Release Technique
If you have sore muscles, tendons and ligaments, the pain can keep you from enjoying your life. It’s time to visit your chiropractor for a revolutionary treatment called Active Release Technique, or ART. Drs. Eric Carson and John Hosten at Carson Chiropractic in Oswego, IL, want to help you discover how Active Release Technique can heal your body.
Active Release Technique uses a series of hands-on manual manipulations to help heal injured muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and connective tissue. By putting pressure on affected areas, ART creates tension and helps heal injured soft tissue. ART helps to:
- Increase strength and balance
- Aid in healing injured tissue
- Increase flexibility and range-of-motion
- Reduce scar tissue which may be pinching nerves
- Lessen pressure on pinched nerves, tendons and ligaments
- Relieve pain from tense muscles and soft tissue injuries
Your chiropractor requires a special certification to practice ART. To be certified, your chiropractor takes a series of classes to learn how to heal the body using Active Release Technique. There are over 500 specific movements to learn in order to practice ART.
Active Release Technique is used to treat many different medical conditions resulting from tension and overuse including headaches, sciatica, shin splints, carpal tunnel, and plantar fasciitis. ART is used to relieve pain and injury to your:
- Neck or back
- Shoulders, elbows, or arms
- Hips, legs, knees, or feet
During your treatment session, your chiropractor will use hand movements to create tension on affected tissue, while he directs you to make certain movements. Each person’s treatment is unique, depending on which individual areas are injured. Active Release Technique is non-invasive and requires no downtime, so you can resume your daily routine.
