While most healthcare providers use techniques of massage, trigger point, electrical modalities and ultrasound to treat soft tissue problems with reasonable results, ART® in our opinion, provides a much better way.
ART® injury treatment is simple, just not easy. An injury causes your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. The scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped.
Applying the ART® protocols is as simple as playing a piano—and just as difficult. ART® practitioners have an excellent understanding of human anatomy and physiology. They develop a very advanced “feel” for tissues and their texture, tension, and movement, because they are taught to find every tissue by touch—and to make fast, permanent changes in tissues.
Every ART® session is a combination of examination and treatment. The ART® provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Then abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
For example, trapped nerves may be gently moved through the tissues by moving every joint and body part that the nerve crosses.
The treatment protocols, consisting of more than 500 specific moves, are unique to ART®. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each patient.
