    Active Release Technique

    ARTActive Release Techniques® (ART) is a soft-tissue mobilization technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It is beneficial for conditions such as headaches, back pains, shin splint, plantar fasciitis, shoulder and knee problems.

    Persistent pain and restriction of motion can be caused by a build-up of scar tissue after an injury, affecting the body’s soft tissue. Such injuries often do not show up in X-rays, which make them difficult to diagnose and treat with traditional methods. Trained to identify and treat a variety of soft-tissue conditions, ART-certified physical therapists use a hands-on technique involving your body’s natural motion to break up scar tissue and restore motion to affected areas.

    ART is offered at the following locations: Andersonville-Edgewater, Elmwood Park, Lincoln Park Athletic Club-Diversey, North Ave.-Sheffield FFC, Oak Park RUSH, Park Ridge FFC, Portage Park-Six Corners, Rogers Park-Loyola University, and Union Station FFC.
