What is ARTŪ️? Chiropractor Dr. Avik Sarkar explains...

ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES is a soft tissue system that involves muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia & nerves. When an injury occurs, scar tissues or adhesions are formed resulting in pain, decreased mobility and strength. Most conditions can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they often result from injury to over-used muscles.

Acute injuries (pulls, tears, collisions, etc), accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma), not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia). Response to ART treatment Strength, speed and endurance are expected to improve within the first few visits. Symptoms are often duplicated during treatment and are usually relieved during the first or second treatment.
