Active Release Technique (ART) is a state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. These are often a result of over-use in muscles that can cause your body to develop tough dense scar tissue, causing muscles to shorten and become weak. Tension on tendons and nerves can become entrapped. There are over 500 specific moves that allow the provider to identify the problems affecting each patient.
Team Chiropractic is certified in both manual and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization that effectively breaks down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless-steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
For the Patient:
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Decreases inflammation
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Tight muscles can be extremely painful and, over time, limit your range of motion or mobility. In correlation with spinal re-engineering chiropractic adjustments, myofascial release is highly effective in treating patients with the following symptoms:

Headaches / migraines
Dizziness / vertigo
Shoulder pain / frozen shoulder
