Active Release Technique Benefits

The active release technique (ART) was developed to treat soft tissue disorders without using invasive measures. The active release technique works deep within the soft tissues to break up adhesive tissue that may be restricting your movements and causing you pain. Active release therapy helps patients relieve joint stress caused when injuries occur. When blended with chiropractic care, your body heals and becomes stronger than ever before. At Woodbury Family Chiropractic, we offer ART to help patients find optimal relief from their pain or discomfort.

What Is Active Release Therapy?

This form of physical therapy is designed to target scar tissue by manipulating the soft tissue. By loosening and breaking up adhesions and scar tissue, ART works to reduce stress to the area. At each session, our team will determine which muscles to target and locate the scar tissue causing the problem. Active release therapy helps patients and provides various health benefits, including: 

Helps Reduce Inflammation

Injuries can often lead to inflammation, causing increased pain in the affected areas. Active release technique promotes the flow of joint fluid during chiropractic sessions, helping stimulate the lymphatic system in the process. Due to this, inflammation levels are reduced, helping patients experience a significant reduction in pain.

Reduces Lower Back pain

Back pain is one of the leading causes of reduced mobility, with numerous patients experiencing disabilities due to limited movement. Fortunately, this is an area that active release therapy can help with by breaking up scar tissue. It also frees compressed nerves, especially in regions such as the glutes and the upper legs. The result of this is reduced back pain.

Increases Range of Motion

Traumatic injuries can often result in a reduced range of motion, especially when accidents lead to neck pain. Active release therapy helps reduce pain in the injured regions, helping you get back your range of motion after a few sessions.
