LOW BACK PAIN
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES (ART) IS CONSIDERED THE GOLD STANDARD FOR THE TREATMENT OF SOFT TISSUE INJURIES.
Active Release Techniques is a patented, state of the art soft tissue release technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. This is achieved by placing the tissues through the ranges of movement and applying tension to break up any scar tissue or adhesions within the tissues. The formation of these adhesions is normally associated as a result of overused muscles or a repetitive strain injury (RSI).
As these lesions get denser the affected muscles become shorter and weaker. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped it may also cause tingling, numbness, and weakness.
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
