Active Release Technique

09.png

ART is a "hands on" soft tissue management system. It is the manipulation of soft-tissue (muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons and nerves) through the use of the credentialed practitioner's hands. We will use his hands to create tension and motion on the affected tissues to produce movement in the soft tissue. The patient may also be asked to move their body part while the treatment is rendered.

ART treatment guidelines based on the scientific evidence that soft tissues develop adhesions and scar tissue after injury. ART has been found to be a critical component of athletic performance and rehabilitation to many of today's top athletes. Large and small companies have also utilized this technique to decrease injuries of their workforce.

The presence of an adhesion after an injury weakens the soft tissues and causes them to be susceptible to future re-injury.

This is a post-doctoral certification and credentialed ART® Practitioners have been extensively trained to locate and treat these types of injuries. To be successful, the treatment must be performed by a credentialed ART Doctor.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I have been seeing Dr. Parker for several years. Four years ago I moved to Baltimore for college. Since then I've been to another chiropractor and was unsatisfied. Now, every time I come home I see Dr. Parker. He is able to do more healing in 2 visits than the other could do with 15! I would strongly recommend Dr. Parker."

    Sincerely,"
    - Ben P. - College Graduate
  • ""For decades I have endured back, neck and hip pain. Over these many years I have been to see numerous chiropractors, and other specialists, in search of pain relief and increased mobility. Dr. Parker has been extremely helpful in this pursuit. He provides gentle manipulation and works with me to explore and find the best outcomes. Dr. Parker has been my chiropractor for several years now. He truly understands my individual issues, and continues to have my complete trust and confidence. "

    Sincerely,"

  • ""Dr. Parker was introduced to me by my friend when I came with her to an appointment. In the waiting room he noticed my hand was twitching. He examined me and told me about my condition. He managed my pain and got me better. I was back to my activities and feeling better than before I met him. Thanks Dr. Parker! I have told many friends about him and they have been happy as well."

    Sincerely,"
    - Helen B - Retired
