ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
ART ® is a soft tissue management system developed by P. Michael Leahy, D.C., CCSP. Dr. Leahy is a chiropractor in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He utilized his background in aeronautical engineering and anatomy to effectively treat soft tissue problems, which were not responding to other traditional treatments.
The goal of ART® is to restore optimal texture, motion, and function of the soft tissue and release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels. This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions or fibrosis in the soft tissues via the application of specific protocols. Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion , and constant pressure or tension. ART® eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions.
Dr. Leahy first began teaching his innovative technique in 1991 using the name myofascial release. Later in 1995, he trademarked the name Active Release Techniques®. This was done for several reasons —
The types of conditions successfully treated with ART® is very diverse.
Some of the more common conditions are:
TRIGENICS FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY
TRIGENICS® is a neuro-kinetic, sensorimotor assessment, treatment and training system which instantly relieves pain and increases strength and movement. It is currently practiced by over 2000 doctors, therapists and trainers in 20 countries worldwide. The complex procedures used in Trigenics® retrain the way the brain communicates it’s movement and/or pain signals with the muscles of the body.
Trigenics® works by combining 3 treatment techniques which are applied at the same time for a therapeutic synergistic effect on the nervous system which is much greater than if you only applied one.
The 3 components are
resistive exercise neurology
muscle nerve-sensor stimulation
Trigenics® is a unique and dramatically effective treatment system which utilizes recent advances in applied functional neurology, developed by its founder, Dr. Allan Oolo Austin, with new manual medicine procedures. With Trigenics® your nervous system is treated to essentially reset the way your brain communicates with your body.
