ART® is a Patented & Medically Proven Therapy used world-wide
that corrects muscular & soft-tissue problems caused by
adhesion formation as a result of acute injury, repetitive trauma, or
constant pressure and tension.
ART® restores the muscles, tendons, fascia & nerves to their
proper function, thus decreasing pain and increasing performance
without the use of drugs or extended rest periods.
ART® is an active form of therapy that requires patient
participation to locate not only the symptoms, but also the
underlying cause of the dysfunction.
ART® helps eliminate trigger points, because it treats the source
of the pain. Sometimes the path of treatment may not be obvious
due to either radiating or referred pain symptoms.
ART® improves performance by increasing range of motion,
strength, endurance, and reaction times. It also increases
circulation causing a positive change in CO2, O2, and nutrition
and facilitates tissue repair.
ART® Provider Certification is imperative to ensure against less
proven “copy-cat” therapies.

ART® finds the tissue that is injured and physically works it back to its normal texture,
tension and length using over 500 treatment protocols for injuries.
Breaking up the adhesions can be at times uncomfortable.
Once the muscle is returned to its normal state, then the joint may be
manipulated into alignment only if medically indicated.
It is also important to reproduce the symptoms during the treatment to
ensure that the correct muscles are being addressed.
The muscles must then be strengthened using the prescribed exercises
in order to keep the joint in the correct position.
Unlike most therapies, it does not require extended periods of rest before you notice results.
You can expect to see significant improvements in the injury after just a few sessions.

Is ART® & Rehabilitation a permanent cure?
The immediate changes to the adhesions are permanent, but the real answer lies in patient
compliance with the prescribed stretching & strengthening exercises designed for their
individual muscle imbalances, activity or sport.
If it is a repetitive motion or tension injury, then the adhesions could eventually build-up again if
the activity itself is not modified, thus requiring further treatment.
