with active release therapy.

Active Release Techniques® Therapy

What are the benefits of the Active Release Technique®?

Active Release Techniques®, referred to as ART®, is a treatment used to relieve tissue tension and restore muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia, and other soft-tissue function, while releasing entrapped nerves.

How can overused muscles result in aches and pains?

When a muscle is overused, the body responds by building a dense scar tissue or adhesions. This scar tissue accumulation in ligaments, tendons and muscles can cause nerve entrapment pain, weakness and lack of mobility.

What is Active Release Techniques®?

This technique is a hands-on deep tissue manipulation therapy. Compression and forces are applied to the abnormal tissue, combined with specific patient movements.

What to expect at an ART® treatment

Every session will be a combination of an exam and treatment. We will evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Abnormal tissues will be treated with compression and specific range of motion to release problem areas.

Candidates for ART®

Anyone suffering from headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems or tennis elbow would be a great candidate for active release therapy.

Can any provider perform ART®?

Only a credentialed ART provider can ascertain whether Active Release Techniques® might prove to be a beneficial treatment for your condition. Dr. King and Dr. Rich Kingsbury are one of the very few providers in the Green Bay area credentialed with Elite Provider Status for ART®.
