What Does an Active Release Techniques Visit Entail?

An Active Release Techniques (ART) visit typically involves several key components:

  • Assessment: Dr. Barnhill will begin by assessing your condition and identifying the specific areas of concern. This may involve discussing your symptoms, medical history, and performing physical examinations to pinpoint the source of your discomfort.
  • Treatment: During the treatment phase, Dr. Barnhill will use hands-on techniques to address the soft tissue issues identified during the assessment. This often includes applying precisely directed tension and movement to break up adhesions, scar tissue, and muscle tightness. Then we may use our hands, fingers, or specialized tools to apply pressure and manipulation to the affected muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
  • Active Engagement: Unlike passive therapies where the patient remains stationary, ART typically involves active participation from the patient. You may be asked to perform specific movements or exercises while the practitioner applies pressure to facilitate the release of tension and improve mobility.
  • Reassessment: Throughout the session, Dr. Barnhill will continually reassess your response to the treatment, making adjustments as necessary to ensure optimal results. They may also provide guidance on posture, ergonomics, and exercises to support your recovery and prevent future issues.
  • Education and Home Care: Finally, the Dr. Barnhill may offer recommendations for self-care strategies to complement the in-office treatment. This could include exercises, stretches, ergonomic adjustments, and lifestyle modifications aimed at promoting healing and preventing recurrence of the problem.

Overall, an ART visit is focused on addressing soft tissue dysfunction and restoring optimal function through a combination of hands-on therapy, active participation, and personalized care. The goal is to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall physical performance.
