Active Release Techniques (ART)
At Kinetica our Chiropractor has been providing Active Release Therapy to the community of East Toronto for over 17 years.
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a soft tissue system therapy system that treats problems with muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons and nerves. ART was originally mostly used for treating elite athletes. The idea and systems are now being used to treat both occupational and repetitive strain disorders.
ART uses specific movements with specific tension on the appropriate tissue. It helps to break up scar tissue, remove waste products, and restore normal joint mechanics.
