Keeping you properly aligned is our top priority. With the Active Release Technique (also known as ART), we do exactly that by going beyond your spinal bones and focus on soft tissue problems. Using this technique, we can easily identify the issue and work to resolve it quickly.

What to Expect

First, your North York chiropractor will evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments. If scar tissue is present, we’ll be able to feel it because it will be preventing soft tissues from moving properly.

This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and even pain. If nerve tissue is trapped, there may be tingling, numbness and weakness as well.

When problems are detected, a precise amount of pressure is applied. These manual maneuvers are normally applied at the site of your injury. Excellent results have been reported with the neuromuscular system:

  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Fascia

Patients have reported improvements relating to:

Most of these conditions share one important common denominator: overused muscles. We use this technique because it’s a proven, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that helps many muscle-related conditions resolve quickly and permanently.
