What is Active Release Technique?

Active Release Technique is a safe and effective soft tissue technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia (connective tissue), and nerve entrapments. A multitude of musculoskeletal conditions can benefit from Active Release.

These conditions all have one important similarity: they are frequently the result of overused muscles, causing muscle spasms, scar tissue, and eventual loss of function within a region of the body. 1

How Active Release Technique Works…

How Active Release Technique Works…

The doctors at Back In Motion Sport & Spine Physical Therapy will examine patients’ symptoms that seem to be related to changes in their soft tissue that could be felt by hand.

Your doctor will use his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.

When the tissue seems abnormal, the doctor will precisely direct tension with very specific patient movements to eliminate this adhesion and restore your normal mobility and reduce pain.

It may be time to come see us if you are asking yourself these questions:

“When will this be going away?”

“Is this pain going to be permanent?”

“How can I get my daily function back?”

“How soon can I resume back to my active lifestyle?”

“Will I be able to exercise or workout again?”

Frequently Asked Questions About Active Release Technique:

The main reason why you should come to our clinic for ART is to get an accurate diagnosis.

Many patients think they have sciatica but they really don’t. For instance, sometimes it is arthritis of the spine or the hip that mimics sciatic conditions.

Similarly, you may have a herniated or bulging disc or spinal stenosis that mimics sciatica, too! Although your symptoms may be the same, the treatment is completely different and, if done incorrectly, can make your condition worse!

Our doctors of physical therapy in Fort Myers, FL can make this easy for you to discern.

Benefits include:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased lower back pain
  • Management of shin splints
  • Management of plantar fasciitis
  • Improvement of sciatic symptoms

Individuals with acute or chronic conditions to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues may benefit from ART. This may include sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, sprains, strains, overuse and overtraining injuries, and old injuries with built-up scar tissues.

No. Just call and schedule your appointment! In the state of Florida, physician referrals are not required for Physical Therapy services.
