Active Release Technique (ART) in Burlington

What is Active Release Technique?

Pillars of Wellness, located in Burlington, Aldershot, specializes in the use of active release therapy, also called active release technique (ART) to treat pain and inflammation that results from soft tissue injuries.

ART uses manipulation (such as massage or kneading) and movement to treat injuries in your body’s soft tissues. Our chiropractor will provide an assessment which will lead to a custom treatment plan. There, treatment will identify, isolate, and target the affected area, breaking up scar tissue to promote blood flow along with faster and safer healing.

ART is a patented, state-of-the-art movement-based soft tissue technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Conditions such as headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee injuries, and tennis elbow are just some of the conditions that active release therapy can help with.
