ART is a non-invasive treatment system precisely engineered to locate and resolve soft-tissue disorders.
ART is a movement-based form of manual therapy. It allows a provider to locate scar tissue “adhesions” within soft tissue structures by using the developed senses of their hands.
Soft tissue structures are muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Nerves can be affected by their surrounding soft tissue structures that they are in contact with and tunnel through.
“Adhesions” are bands of scar tissue that restrict a tissue’s flexibility, and functionality, and often bind two different tissues together that shouldn’t be connected.
Adhesions are typically due to a non-traumatic build up of scar tissue from repetitive overuse. (for example: an athlete doesn’t fully recover from a tough workout before working out again and the tissue slowly breaks down over time, building up less functional muscles, tendons and ligaments with scar tissue throughout.)
Through a precise process the provider specifically contacts an identified adhesion within a tissue and takes it through it’s entire range of motion while under the tension of their contact. With each repetition the adhesion is incrementally broken down.
ART Long Nerve Tract flossing techniques combine complex nerve lengthening movements with traditional ART treatment to free nerves from adhesions by moving and flossing the nerves through their tunnels. These protocols can often effectively resolve adhesions affecting the nerves in locations that can’t directly be contacted.
Carpal tunnel, median nerve entrapments.
Radial nerve entrapments.
Ulnar nerve entrapments.
Thoracic outlet syndrome, nerve root entrapments.
Cervicogenic migraines, entrapments of the greater occipital nerve, lesser occipital nerve, third occipital nerve and suboccipital nerve.
Sciatic nerve entrapments.
Femoral nerve entrapments.
Pudendal nerve entrapments.
Morton’s Neuroma, median plantar nerve entrapment
Treatments are spaced out by a few days to allow for tissue healing between applications and results in improved tissue quality and restoration of joint stability and flexibility.
Results provide conservatively non-surgical and drug free relief of pain.
Our providers are certified to the highest level of ART, having continuously studied and re-credentialed for over 15 years. Our unique treatment results are due to our expert level experience and development of refined techniques over many years.
