Active Release Techniques (ART) Q & A

What is Active Release Techniques® (ART)?

ART is a well-known hands-on therapy for soft tissue that addresses issues involving the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. 

ART aims to find, isolate, and treat the affected area, breaking up scar tissue to improve your range of motion and reduce inflammation and pain. It also increases blood flow to the area to speed up the body's healing process.

What conditions benefit from ART?

Synergy Release Sports is an innovative practice that uses ART to treat all types of pain conditions and injuries. You may benefit from ART if you have: 

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bursitis
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries

The team at Synergy Release Sports takes an individualized approach to care and performs a thorough evaluation before making any treatment recommendations. Your initial evaluation aims to find the source of your pain or health problem. 

The team then designs a treatment plan focusing on that source, healing the body and improving how it functions. They include ART as part of their pain therapies (for healing) and performance therapies (to improve body function). 

If you have a soft tissue pain condition, you might benefit from ART at Synergy Release Sports.

What happens during ART?

Your provider at Synergy Release Sports performs ART at the office. During your therapy, your provider uses their hands to evaluate the texture of your soft tissue, looking for abnormalities.

Once they identify the abnormal tissue, your provider combines precise pressure treatments with body movement to break up the scar tissue. You may feel some discomfort during your ART treatment at Synergy Release Sports. If you have a low tolerance for pain, let the team know so they can adjust your treatment plan. 

What can I expect after ART?

You may experience an improvement in your pain and body mechanics after one ART session at Synergy Release Sports. However, it’s not unusual to need a series of treatments to get the best results. 

The goal of ART, and all the other therapies on your treatment plan, is to eliminate your pain and improve how your body functions so you can achieve your wellness goals.
