Active Release Technique in Fort Myers

Chiropractic Fort Myers FL Happy Couple

Our Fort Myers chiropractor uses the Active Release Technique to help patients feel their best. Active release technique (A.R.T) is a soft tissue system and movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons ligament, fascia, and nerves.

Scar tissue can be caused by an acute injury, poor posture or overuse. As a result of the scar tissue, it can reduce movement, loss of strength, interfere with proper nerve function and increase pain. When nerve tissue is trapped, there tends to be tingling, numbness and weakness as well.

Upon evaluation Dr. Chery will be able to identify the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments on the occasion scar tissue is present. Dr. Chery will be able to diagnosis the problem since soft tissue will not able to move in a proper manner.


What is the Goal of A.R.T

The main goal of A.R.T. is to help restore motion, release scar tissue or adhesion in the muscle, release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels, and decrease pain.

The doctor will apply precise amounts of pressure while patients move or bend in specific ways that aid in the correction of your condition. Such manual maneuvers are normally applied at the site of your injury. Significant results have been reported with the neuromuscular system:
