Advance Physical Therapy in Boise Idaho offers Active Release Techniques. Active Release Techniques ( ART ) soft tissue management system is so different that is has been granted a medical patent. In order to become an ART provider, each professional must complete extensive hands on instruction and written/practical testing unparalleled by other soft tissue programs. An ART provider is trained to palpate and treat more than 300 muscular and fascial injuries and over 100 nerve entrapment's, which often cause numbness and tingling.
ART has also developed an advanced training program called ART Bio mechanics Certification. These providers study the body in motion and address the sites which prevent optimum performance. This type of care is so effective that it is common to find Bio mechanics Certified providers treating professional football, basketball, hockey and Olympic athletes.
What can be expected from Active Release Treatment?
Active Release Techniques, as the name implies, uses motion to fix the problem. Once the injury has been assessed, the provider uses hands on treatment and patient motion to " free up" the problem areas. Treatment duration and frequency may vary depending on the severity and complexity of the injury. However, most patients experience rapid recovery.
Who can benefit from ART?
What we hear most is " I have had this pain for a long time, and up until now, no one has been able to find the cause. You found the source of the problem right away". This is because no one is trained to palpate those specific conditions like an ART provider. Seeing an ART provider is like seeing a soft tissue and nerve specialist. Until now, no such specialist existed. Since an ART provider is qualified to diagnose and treat over 400 structures, we see a broad range of injuries and conditions. ART is successful for professional and amateur athletes, people injures in auto accidents or at work, and people who just work hard and hurt. Symptoms vary from aches and pains, to burning muscles, to numbness and tingling.
