Active Release Technique (ART) Calgary

ART Calgary

Active Release Technique (ART) is a manual therapy directed at treating the soft tissues of the body (muscles, tendons, ligaments) by performing specific movements with added tension along the muscle provided by the practitioner’s thumb or fingers in order to lengthen the muscle. By lengthening the tissue with specific movements, pain can be reduced, range of motion restored, and most importantly it enables the patient to return to their daily activities pain-free

.

  • Low Back Pain
