Active Release Technique®

The North Toronto Natural Health Clinic is one of the few clinics in the area to offer full-body certified Active Release Technique®.  ART® is a hands-on, soft tissue disorder treatment that has become very popular with elite athletes and sports teams due to its ability to produce rapid results. Fortunately, it is also effective in treating many of the following conditions such as:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Rotator cuff sprain/strain
  • Nerve impingements
  • Sciatic nerve symptoms
  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Temporomandibular joint
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow

 

Active Release Technique® treats these conditions by restoring proper sliding of muscles, nerves, ligaments and tendons in areas that have become injured. In an Active Release treatment the practitioner will shorten the muscle, tendon or ligament and then apply very specific pressure with their hands as the patient actively moves the body part. This treatment in motion allows the certified ART® practitioner to assess the area and break up restrictive adhesions, reinstate normal tissue flexibility and movement and restore better biomechanics and function of the area.

Dr. Carla Inoque is a certified ART® practitioner, and would be pleased to meet with you to assess your disorder and determine if ART® is the right choice for your condition.
