What is ART?

Active release technique

ART is a hands-on therapy that corrects muscular and softtissue problems which are caused by the formation of adhesive tissues that are laid down due to overuse or cumulative trauma/stress. Soft tissue injury can end your physical career because cumulative trauma and overuse of softtissue causes Repetitive Stress Injuries.
If soft tissue that is forced to perform the same job continuously, it becomes irritated and then inflamed. The body responds to inflammation by laying down scar tissue (adhesive tissue). Once this happens and isn’t corrected, this vicious cycle continues and worsens the condition. The longer this condition persists, the harder is to break this cycle.
ART provides a way to locate, diagnose, and treat the underlying causes of cumulative trauma disorders . ART could help these disorders result in symptoms of Numbness, Tingling, Burning and Aching.

Not only sports injuries!! We can help others!

Dr. Thomas Hyde

Former NHL Miami Dolphins official Doctor of Chiropractic, Official Olympic Doctor of Chiropractic

I highly recommend Dr. Tomonori from Japan. He has graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic West where he was very active in the Student Sports Council. Dr. Tomonori goes by the name of Tomo.
During the last couple of years, we have spent much time together during my visits to Palmer West and at various seminars throughout the US and Canada. Tomo has chosen to follow his dream to become a sports chiropractor. He has been very active in the student sports council and has attended many other programs in an attempt to become the very best chiropractor treating athletes possible.
I find Tomo to be very bright, energetic, having a tremendous desire to learn and willing to seek the very best this profession and other professions have to offer him. He appears to be very moral, ethical and exhibits good work habits.
