Active Release Technique Ottawa

The Back to Health team has made this video to explain and DEMONSTRATE Active Release Techniques (ART). The video also features patient testimonials!

Active Release Technique (ART) is a state of art soft tissue treatment technique designed to treat problems involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. The goal of ART is to reduce dense scar tissue, adhesions, and knots, which can build up over time causing a number of potential long term problems in affected areas, restoring smooth movement without pain. Treatment can provide relief for, and resolve conditions causing pain, soft- tissue inflammatory disorders, repetitive strain injuries, common ailments affecting athletes, office workers, arthritis sufferers, nerve related issues and individuals who have experienced trauma of any sort. Thousands of world champion athletes have discovered the benefits of active release.

Sessions are a combination of examination and treatment as the provider uses their skills and hands to evaluate a number of issues, including texture, tightness, and movement. Using specific movements and precise tension, issues are treated over a series of appointments.

Many of Back to Health’s health care team are certified in Active Release Technique.
