What is Active Release Techniques®?
Active Release Techniques® (ART®) is widely recognized as the gold standard in soft tissue therapy. ART® entails identifying, isolating, and targeting the affected area to break up adhesions which, in turn, promotes blood flow and faster healing of injuries. Adhesions are dense collections of scar tissue that form when muscles and connective tissues are injured. When the scar tissue binds between your muscles, it limits flexibility, causing pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. Sometimes adhesions can also entrap nerves. The manipulation of the soft tissues through ART® breaks up the adhesions so your muscles, joints, and nerves can move freely again.
ART® is a quick and efficient method of removing scar tissue and promoting optimal function ad healthier tissue. Its protocols are specific to the treatment area and effective within few visits. Eighty percent of professional sports teams in the U.S. utilize ART® practitioners to improve the performance of their athletes and to allow for faster healing of injuries.
Dr. Serinsky and Dr. Gyimesi are two of the most highly certified ART® practitioners in the tri-state region, having received training in full spine (spine, lower extremity, upper extremity), nerve entrapment, biomechanics and palpation.
