Active Release Techniques, patented by Chiropractor Dr. Michael Leahy, otherwise known as ART, is a system of soft tissue manipulation that treats scar tissue adhesions affecting muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and fascia (the band of connective tissue beneath the skin that stabilizes muscles and organs). ART is particularly useful in the treatment of overused, torn muscles as well as in acute injuries. The doctor will manually assess the movement of your muscles and fascia and decide which areas required treatment. Pilot studies on the efficacy of ART have shown an increase in Flexibility and reduction in pain. ART can be a helpful treatment to improve the efficacy of Strength training regimes.
