What is Active Release Therapy?
Scar tissue is the body’s quick fix solution to repair strains to muscles, tendons, ligaments or even nerves. It is like glue in that it holds the torn fibers together as they heal. However, the process goes overboard. When there is not enough time to heal before the tissue is being used again, the scar tissue then starts to adhere to other healthy tissues.
The result is pain, numbness, stiffness and weakness. An entire change in the body’s biomechanics occurs.
A. R. T. is effective with acute or chronic areas of injury.
