Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats many conditions caused by overused muscles.

These problems are resolved quickly and often permanently with the use of active release therapy:
How Does Active Release Technique Help in Overuse Conditions?
Active Release Technique Chiropractic can treat scar tissue as well as nerve symptoms. Other therapies may take months to correct these problems, while Active Release Technique can usually correct issues in anywhere from 1 to 10 visits.
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
- Acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc)
- Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
- Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely.
As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, the tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness. This is where Active Release Technique in Townson and Columbia can be extremely helpful.
