Active Release Techniques ® is a revolutionary manual soft tissue treatment that aims to restore normal function between muscles and nerves. The treatment is used to manage acute and chronic injuries. When an injury occurs, adhesions or scar tissue may form between adjacent tissues, such as muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments. The adhesions affect the smooth motion of one structure against the other. This results in abnormal biomechanics, causing compression or inhibition of these tissues. Used by a professional, this ‘massage like’ technique can break up scar tissue, release adhesions and restore proper functioning of the muscle fibers, leading to quicker healing and prompt return to activity.
