Treat chronic, acute muscle pain with Active Release Technique

The Active Release Technique for muscle pain will have you feeling great and getting back to doing what you love as soon as possible.

What is Active Release Technique?

Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, evidence-based, soft tissue treatment that focuses on eliminating the cause of pain, rather than covering up symptoms. ART is performed by hand to reduce fibrous adhesions and restore proper motion and function. Because of its advanced techniques, providers are required to have a thorough knowledge of the human body, and how tendons, muscles, and tissues interact. Understanding how these elements cooperate is necessary in discovering why there is pain and what must be done to permanently resolve it.

Soft Tissue Relief

Treating soft tissue conditions with Active Release Technique

Are you suffering from chronic or acute muscle pain? Chances are, you’ve tried your fair share of pain relief methods, and have perhaps had little or no success. If you are tired of merely alleviating symptoms instead of discovering a permanent solution, our team at Integrated Health Solutions is excited to offer you the Active Release Technique.

IHS’s team are ART experts who have trained with a team formed by Dr. P Michael Leahy, developer of the ART technique. ART is one of the most modern methods for treating overused muscles, and Dr. Charbel is well versed at the ART movements and protocols that effectively heal various soft tissue conditions such as headaches, back pain, muscle tears, and many more.

Active Release Technique is an excellent way to treat joint pain, muscle soreness, and many other conditions

In conjunction with other complementary therapies used by Integrated Health Solutions, the Active Release Technique is one of the building blocks in creating wellness and healing plans that are tailored to each individual patient.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, ART can be used as a treatment option for dozens of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Shin splints
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Achilles and calf pain
  • Other soreness in tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves

Experience the benefits of Active Release Technique

Most joint and muscle soreness in the body is due to scar tissue that has formed after an injury. Through the use of coordinated massage techniques, scar tissue can often be permanently removed, healing patients and increasing tissue mobility.

Through ART, scar tissue can be identified, and the process of gently releasing your affected muscles and removing that scar tissue can begin. Some of the benefits include: 

  • Increased flexibility and range of motion
  • Decreased back and neck pain
  • Relief from headaches and migraines 
  • Improved sciatic symptoms 
  • Injury prevention and reduced recovery time

What should I expect from Active Release Technique treatment? 

When a patient comes into the IHS offices to undergo ART treatment, a comprehensive history, intake exam, and careful analysis of the soft tissue functionality will be conducted to better understand the underlying cause of the pain. The soft tissue analysis is accomplished using Active Palpation, a hands-on technique developed to detect soft tissue abnormalities and dysfunction typically without the use of ultrasound or MRI technology. 

Additional therapies offered at IHS that can complement ART techniques include acupuncture, physical rehabilitation, and posture analysis, as well as specialized treatments for sports injuries, TMJ, headaches, and neck pain. The therapies we use have been developed through years of training, scientific research, and evidence-based clinical experience in an effort to bring our patients the widest variety of effective healing methods and rehabilitation options.

Discover real results with Active Release Technique

All of the specialists in the IHS office have years of experience with these therapies, as well as professional training, medical degrees, and individual research which assist in their ability to offer each patient a personalized healing plan that is not only specific to their needs, but also based in the most recent developments in medicine.

Our patients are witnessing dramatic results and enjoying restored muscle movement, as well as the elimination of pain. The field success of ART is proving what the studies have already shown: it is effective in healing both severe and minor injuries; it is effective in permanently alleviating pain at the source; and it is effective in restoring tissue extensibility which can cause knee pain, tennis elbow, and other conditions.

Dr. Charbel Harb knows that each person’s experience is different, as is each person’s pain. Integrated Health Solutions works first toward understanding your unique symptoms before developing a comprehensive, personalized healing plan. Through the use of integrated techniques that combine traditional medicine with the latest discoveries in science, we are able to offer clinically tested and proven therapies.
