What is Active Release Technique (ART) to Individuals, Athletes, and Patients?

ART is a patented, soft tissue system/movement based massage 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 with ART. 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? 

Every ART session is actually 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. 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 providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.

 "Dr. Steingart is the best. First of all, his staff is very kind and are ready to help always. I have been having back troubles for some time now and have been to a few chiropractors. He is by far the most knowledgeable, up to date, caring doctor I have ever had. I would give him and his staff 10 out of 5 if I could. Go to him...he knows what he is doing." From RateMD's
