Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique (ART)
At Bannockburn Chiropractic, ART is our specialty. It’s a highly effective technique we use to find and remove adhesions, fibrous bands that form between tissues and organs, within the soft tissue. It offers dramatically shorter treatment time and for most patients, is an alternative to anti-inflammatories, shots and physical therapy.
ART is a manual soft tissue treatment where by the Chiropractor takes the muscle from a shortened state to an elongated state, and using their finger or thumb as a wedge, break down adhesions that are causing pain and irritation. Our belief is that ART is a necessary component to treatment in combination with chiropractic manipulation. We successfully treat a wide range of injury and conditions every day.
