What’s new about ART®
ART® Is a change in the basic understanding of soft tissue injury. It gives the doctor the insight necessary to identify and correct the root cause of a problem. Unlike other treatment methods, the patient is an active participant in ART®.
ART® and the Doctor
Treatment with Active Release Techniques® is exclusively “hands on.” There are no unwanted side effects from medication or surgical complications. ART® doctors are trained to identify areas of scar tissue by the way it feels — like a tight area in the soft tissue with an altered texture and decreased movement.
