Active Release Technique

At West Hampstead Chiropractic Clinic we provide Active Release Techniques (ART) which is a patented soft tissue movement based technique.

ART is used by many professional sports team in the US and now some in the UK too. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movement. These treatment protocols with over 500 specific moves are unique to ART, allowing  your chiropractor to identify and treat the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.

The goals of ART are to increase the blood flow to the injured area, break down scar tissue and to restore the normal movement of the muscle or joint thereby speeding up the rate of healing.

“The technique only became available in Europe in 2009, but according to Nicolai van der Lagen, manager of ART education in Europe, it’s now routinely used by medical staff at Everton and Tottenham Hotspur football clubs, and professional cycling and athletics teams.”
