Active release techniques is a practical, movement-based manual therapy that treats soft tissue injuries, including breaking up scar tissue and improving range of motion.
Active release therapy (ART) is based on scientific evidence that adhesions between the muscles and other connective tissues can develop due to injury, causing the motion of muscles or joints to be altered, resulting in symptoms that include: pain, weakness, reduced range of motion, numbness, and tingling.
Physical therapists certified in active release therapy use this hands-on technique to help break up and remodel scar tissue to improve range of motion and decrease pain.
