Active Release Therapy

Rediscover freedom of movement

Restore, maintain and promote optimal physical function, while reducing and preventing further injury


Active Release Therapy (ART) is a specialized form of physiotherapy that focuses on relieving soft tissue restrictions and restoring natural movement. At Elite Physio, our expert therapists are skilled in utilizing ART techniques to address a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological issues, helping our patients regain their freedom of movement and enhance their overall quality of life.

Our Active Release Therapy program at Elite Physio comprises several key components, designed to help you achieve optimal physical function and prevent future injuries:

  • Mobility: Our therapists utilize ART techniques to improve joint mobility and range of motion, helping to alleviate pain, stiffness, and tissue irritation that may contribute to inflammation.
  • Strengthening and muscle activation: Our physiotherapists employ various manual techniques and modalities, such as ART, to address muscle tension, weakness, or imbalances that can impair overall strength and flexibility. By incorporating appropriate resistance training or other exercise programs, we can greatly reduce the likelihood of re-injury and enhance your quality of life.
  • Flexibility: We provide targeted exercises and education to help patients improve muscle and joint range of motion, ensuring they can move through their full range with ease and comfort.
  • Balance: Our therapists design exercises that challenge the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems simultaneously, forming the foundation for agility, strength, and endurance required for a comprehensive rehabilitation program.
  • Cardiovascular Training: To support optimal recovery and function, our therapists integrate exercises that challenge the cardiovascular system, improving heart and lung function, circulation, and oxygen delivery to the body’s muscles, nervous system, and soft tissues.

Embrace the transformative power of Active Release Therapy at Elite Physio and begin your journey to optimal physical function and a pain-free life.

  • Enhanced Athletic Performance: By addressing soft tissue restrictions, ART can contribute to improved performance in sports and other physical activities.
  • Reduced Risk of Re-Injury: Active Release Therapy can help identify and address underlying imbalances and weaknesses, reducing the likelihood of future injuries.
  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation: ART can be an effective component of post-surgical rehabilitation programs, helping to restore function and mobility after surgical procedures.

  • Occupational Health: Active Release Therapy can help address repetitive strain injuries and other work-related musculoskeletal issues, promoting a healthier and more comfortable work environment.

We offer active release therapy treatment customized to your needs.

Upper Extremity ART

This type of therapy focuses on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the upper body, including the arms, shoulders, and neck. It is particularly beneficial for individuals experiencing pain or mobility issues due to overuse, injury, or postural imbalances.

Lower Extremity ART

Lower extremity ART targets the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the lower body, such as the hips, legs, and feet. It is an effective treatment option for patients suffering from pain or mobility issues related to sports injuries, repetitive strain, or other lower body conditions.

Spinal ART

Spinal ART addresses the soft tissues surrounding the spine, targeting areas of tightness, adhesions, or restrictions that may be contributing to pain, stiffness, or mobility issues. This therapy can be beneficial for patients dealing with back pain, sciatica, or other spinal-related issues.

Nerve Entrapment ART

Nerve entrapment ART focuses on releasing compressed or entrapped nerves, which can cause pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. By targeting the specific nerve and surrounding soft tissues, our therapists can help alleviate symptoms and promote optimal nerve function.
