ART is the Gold Standard for soft tissue release

Dr Cohen is Full Body Certified

Overused muscle and other soft tissue injuries can result in scar tissue and restrictions in motion, and compression of nerves or blood vessels. These altered textures can be diagnosed and treated, often very efficiently by an ART provider.

Active Release Technique (ART) is a soft tissue therapy created by chiropractor and engineer Michael Leahy, used to treat issues with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. It involves a practitioner using their hands to apply specific tension and pressure while the patient actively moves through various motions. This technique aims to break up scar tissue, adhesions, and other restrictions in the soft tissues, promoting improved range of motion, decreased pain, and enhanced function.

The ART provider uses hands on treatment and specific patient motion to treat the problem. Many chronic problems clear up quickly with ART when the proper diagnosis and treatment are applied.

ART is very useful for athletes, work and auto injuries, anyone working at computers, gardeners, chefs…in short, just about everyone!
