**Active Release Technique / ART
The conditions that active release is used to help treat naturally are those that affect the fascia or connective tissue, major muscle groups, tendons, and ligaments. Most are the result of pulls, strains, overused muscles, tears and inflammation. The purpose of active release technique is to restore normal mobility.
Lower back pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder and shoulder strains, bursitis and tennis elbow are some of the most commonly relieved problems treated through active release. The benefits of active release are increased flexibility, improved range of motion (following injuries), reduces chronic lower back pain, treats carpal tunnel syndrome, and helps prevent running injuries and improved performance.
