Taking care of ourselves is important to allow us to live the full and active lifestyles we desire. Whether you’re looking to maintain wellness, treat a chronic condition, or find relief from a previous injury — Active Release Techniques (ART) could be the treatment option you’ve been looking for.
Here are 3 reasons why you may benefit from Active Release Techniques:
1. You Experience Pain Or Discomfort
Pain is experienced differently by everyone. It can come on all of a sudden, develop and worsen over time, come and go, or only accompany a certain activity or movement. However, one thing is certain – it affects your lifestyle. Pain and discomfort often are a result of muscles and other soft tissues being stressed and overused. These are indicators that your body needs attention to continue functioning at its best. ART works directly with the problem areas in soft tissues, including muscles, to relieve pain quickly.
2. Daily Tasks Or Activities Have Become More Difficult
Many of the tasks we perform each day at home, at work, or in sports are repetitive. This repetition can result in many conditions such as headaches, decreased range of motion, back pain, sciatica, joint pain, and more. The areas affected by this repetition develop scar tissue that builds up each time the motion is repeated. The scar tissue is thicker and less flexible than the original soft tissue, resulting in conditions like the ones mentioned above. ART get right to the root of these problem areas by freeing up the tissue that is bound, allowing the muscles and other soft tissues to return to their normal functioning ability.
3. You’ve Tried Other Treatments Only To Have The Problem Come Back
We’ve all been through treatments that address the symptoms we are experiencing, alleviating pain and discomfort for a period of time, but not treating the real cause of the problem. This is frustrating to say the least. By treating the cause of the problem directly, Active Release Techniques may be able to provide permanent relief from the symptoms.
