Active Release Technique®

Scar tissue, which is dense and tough, can restrict range of motion, decrease strength, entrap nerves, and cause pain. By combining specific massage techniques with movement, ART® can counter these effects and help return you to your activities of choice!

At Foundations, our certified practitioners can help you determine whether including ART® in your personalized chiropractic or massage therapy treatment plan, will help you to achieve your individual goals. ART® can also be combined with other treatments to help you achieve optimal function and overall performance.

If ART® is used, your practitioner will also provide you with advice and rehabilitative exercises to complement your ART® treatment to prevent future reoccurrences.
