ART® is a state of the art soft tissue system/movement-based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be treated quickly with ART®. The premise of ART® lies in the acknowledgement that most of the damage to the soft tissues of the body is result of overuse syndromes, otherwise known as Cumulative Trauma Syndromes (CTS). These CTS conditions arise from many different events, including acute traumas like pulls, tears or collisions; they can also arise from micro-traumas due to every day wear and tear or repetitive motions seen in certain occupations, hobbies and athletics; and, they can occur from a lack of oxygen uptake at the muscles' cellular level (hypoxia).
The Active Release Technique® providers use their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of the body's soft tissues. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART®. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART® is not a cookie-cutter approach. Just as you are an individual, so is the condition with which you present. At Innate, you will be treated like the individual you are.
