Guide to Active Release Technique in Chiropractic Care

At Integrative Chiropractic Services in Stoughton, MA, Dr. Klezmer and the rest of our team aim to provide the most natural and effective methods of pain relief and recovery. One of these is the Active Release Technique. Learn more about this method in the guide below.

What Is the Active Release Technique, and How Does It Work?

Active release technique – also referred to as A.R.T. – is a treatment method that utilizes manipulation, massage, and movement to treat tension, scar tissue, adhesions, and more in the tendons, muscles, nerves, and ligaments. After identifying troubled areas, your chiropractor will determine the best combination of the above-mentioned methods to break up areas that might be restricting movement or blood flow and causing pain.

Why Does It Combine So Well With Chiropractic Care?

A.R.T. focuses on addressing the soft tissues of the body. Chiropractic care focuses on the hard tissues. However, regardless of the focus, both benefit the other tissues.

In short, A.R.T. relieves tension and other soft tissue problems that put undue strain on the bones and joints. Chiropractic care restores alignment to the bones and joints, which takes undue pressure off the soft tissues. Together, they provide comprehensive care and relief.

What Types of Benefits Does It Provide, and What Can It Treat?

One of the main benefits of A.R.T. is its ability to break up scar tissue that has been building up for some time. Though many people don’t realize it, scar tissue can be at the center of various types of pain. By breaking it up, patients typically find the relief that they have been desperate for.

A.R.T. also helps improve range of motion. Scar tissue and painful knots can prevent you from moving as well as you should be able to. This is one of the various things that make it effective even for joint pain and conditions. And as removing restrictions improves blood flow, it can speed up recovery from injuries.

The various benefits it provides in conjunction with chiropractic care also make A.R.T. effective for treating the following and more:

  • Hand pain
  • Leg pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Tension headaches
  • Knee pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Whiplash
  • Shoulder pain and more
