ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES®

art123

Active Release Techniques® was pioneered by Dr. P. Michael Leahy. He studied engineering in the Air Force before becoming a chiropractor in 1984. As he watched athletes perform; he realized he could combine what he knew about engineering with his chiropractic knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to treat their soft tissue disorders quickly and get them back in their competition.

Four years later some of Dr. Leahy’s chiropractor colleagues persuaded him to teach his method of treatment. The room they reserved for the event overflowed with doctors interested in learning this new technique, leading him to formalize the training of his technique later on. ART® has now been patented with over 10,000 providers trained. Today, ART® is a proven soft tissue management protocol to reduce and eliminate scar tissue due to one of three mechanisms: constant pressure or tension, receptive stress, or a tear or crush to a specific area in the human body. If you are experiencing excruciating body pain, schedule a consult with Dr. Susan Clark today! Click here for an appointment. Her patients praise her for her understanding of what is causing the pain before treating the symptoms.
