Clinical Level ART is comprised of a soft tissue management system, which is so different that it has been granted a US process patent. A.R.T. providers use this hands-on therapy for a wide variety of conditions involving soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia (the fibrous tissues that hold muscles together) and trapped nerves. ART treatments have been very effective with many post surgical cases as well as repetitive strain, industrial and sports injury cases.
The goal of A.R.T. clinical level care, is to relieve pain and dysfunction. The basic premise is that scar tissue builds up at the injury site, trapping nerves or preventing tendons, ligaments and muscles from working properly. It is as if your muscles are adhered together when they should be moving smoothly across one another. The practitioner finds the scar tissue and frees up the adhesions by putting manual tension on it while moving the muscle through a full range of motion, to “release” the problem area.
