Active Release Therapy

Your SW Calgary Choice for Active Release Therapy

If you suffer from pain as a result of an injury, or even just from working at a desk all day, active release therapy might be the answer for you. Chiropractical is pleased to offer active release therapy for all your pain management needs.

What is Active Release Therapy?

Active Release Therapy (ART) is a non-invasive manual therapy technique that focuses on soft tissue that has built up scar tissue. Built-up scar tissue ultimately causes soft tissue restrictions resulting in mobility issues and pain. The goal of ART is to break down scar tissue and adhesions in order to optimize function in the body.

What does an ART Treatment Involve?

Every ART session is a combination of examination and treatment. Your ART provider will use their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, and ligaments. If scar tissue is present, your ART provider will be able to feel it because it will be preventing soft tissues from moving properly. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and even pain. If nerve tissue is trapped, there may be tingling, numbness, and weakness as well.

The Adjustment

When problems are detected, there are over 500 specific protocols to choose from. We will apply precise amounts of pressure while you move or bend in specific ways that aid in the correction of your condition.

These manual maneuvers are normally applied at the site of your injury. Excellent results have been reported with the neuromuscular system to treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.

What Can Active Release Therapy Treat?

ART can resolve a number of common health complaints, including:

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee problems
  • Tennis elbow

Most of these conditions share one important common denominator, overused muscles. When overused muscles begin causing any number of possible health complaints, ART might be the right treatment option. ART has been proven to help many muscle-related conditions resolve quickly and permanently.
