What is Active Release Techniques?

At the Lawlor Clinic we provide Active Release Techniques (ART®) which is a patented hands on soft tissue treatment that allows us to locate and break up scar tissue following injury. It is considered the gold standard treatment for soft tissue and sports injuries because of its very quick results and impact on performance. The short video explains this accurately.

What Is An ART® Treatment Like?

Every ART® session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART® provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

These treatment protocols with 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
