Active Release Technique ® (A.R.T.)

At Whistler Chiropractic, all our chiropractors are A.R.T. certified. A.R.T. treatment is a hands-on procedure that allows the Chiropractor to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries related to muscle, tendon, fascia and nerves.

When an injury occurs whether due to surgery, accident, partial distortion or repetitive strain, the body’s natural response is to form scar tissue. Scarring has a detrimental effect, causing tissues to change and adhere to themselves as well as to other related structures. These adhesions can result in decreased blood flow, nerve entrapments and loss of range of motion, causing pain and slowing the healing process.

Active Release Techniques are specific treatment methods whereby the Chiropractor can remove the adhesions and restore the tissues’ normal function.
