Chiropractic care has long been associated with the alleviation of musculoskeletal pain and the improvement of overall well-being. Along with the many innovative techniques offered at Curis Functional Health, the Active Release Technique (ART) is a revolutionary approach to pain relief and functional improvement.
ART is a hands-on soft tissue manipulation technique developed by Dr. P. Michael Leahy in the late 1980s. It is grounded in the belief that many physical ailments stem from scar tissue, adhesions, and overused muscles that can lead to reduced mobility and pain. ART practitioners are specially trained to identify and treat these soft tissue issues with precision.
The core principle of ART involves the chiropractor using their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. By applying targeted tension, specific movements, and stretching, they can break down adhesions and scar tissue.
