Active Release Techniques(ART) treatment is a hands-on touch and case-management system that allows a practitioner to diagnose and treat soft-tissue injuries.

Injured or hurting? Don’t endure countless medical visits with minimal improvement, take on expensive and risky invasive procedures, or settle for “just living with” soft-tissue pain and disfunction. Instead, make ART your first choice for soft-tissue care.

How Does It Work?


  • the diagnostic process utilizes the provider’s hands to identify aberrations in tissue texture, tension, and movement, continuing until the provider determines the root cause of a condition.


  • Once identified, the condition is targeted by one or more ART treatment protocols, each combining precise touch with specific patient movements to restore proper function and relieve pain.


  • Because the ART system is unique, the results are uncommon. There are no known side effects and most conditions, including strains, sprains, and other musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), are resolved in just five or fewer treatment sessions.

Ideal Candidate

Though ART treatment is often sought as a final option, we urge anyone dealing with soft-tissue or nerve conditions to consider ART and its benefits as a first option. Save yourself (or your employees) the emotional, physical, and monetary expense of invasive, risky, costly, and tedious courses of treatment.

Here at Midland Sports Rehab, our chiropractors are trained in the use of ART treatments and often utilize them as a stand-alone treatment method or in conjunction with other supportive modalities to achieve the best outcomes for our patients.
