Active Release Technique® 

ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based soft tissue technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with Active Release Technique. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

How do overuse conditions occur?

Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This 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. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.

What is an ART treatment like?

ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. Dr. Andrea Tahmooressi uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow Dr. Andrea Tahmooressi to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.  ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.  ART providers must be able to develop a very advanced "feel" for the tissues and their texture, tension and movement.  The basic premise is simple, just not easy.  Shorten the tissue, apply a contact tension and lengthen the tissue or make it slide relative to the adjacent tissue.

Testimonials

"Dr. Andrea Tahmooressi listens, analyzes, treats, the issue and measures the progress and adjusts accordingly. She doesn’t meet with you already assuming she knows the course of treatment but tailors it specifically to you.  Even if you’ve tried other chiropractors, you owe it to yourself to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tahmooressi as she’s different from anyone you’ve ever been to before."
