Active Release Technique


At Summit Chiropractic we use Active Release Techniques, also referred to as A.R.T., which focus on the relief of fibrosis adhesions in the muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves through soft tissue release.

These adhesions in our tissues can be caused from overload due to repetitive use, which can lead to weakness in the muscle, numbness, aching, or tingling sensations. You may also experience stiffness or limited flexibility and mobility in your muscles and joints.

A.R.T. combines soft tissue work with movement and can help to promote blood flow and quicker healing of an injury. We use this as an effective treatment for overuse, trauma, or most commonly, for patients seeking sports rehabilitation for an injury that prohibits them from performing at their highest level.

We use ART to manage a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Chronic knee problems
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain
  • Shin splints
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic back pain
  • Recurrent episodes of disabling headaches

If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned conditions, Dr. Asdrubal Lopez of Summit Chiropractic & Sports Institute should be your first option to get you back on your feet and living a pain free life again. Call us today to schedule your appointment or fill out the evaluation form below.
