Active Release Technique

The Active Release Technique is a Manual Therapy technique based on soft-tissue movement. Injuries to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves that are related to repetitive stress or trauma, like Tennis Elbow and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, are commonly treated. At Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine, Dr. Jeff Fluitt commonly uses ART to efficiently treat injuries of this nature. Preliminary studies show that ART is more effective than many conventional treatments for several of these conditions.

Active Release Technique:

Active Release treatments are a combination of examination and treatment. Our providers will determine and address the exact site of the injury and type of tissue affected. What differentiates this technique from similar therapies is the active movement of the afflicted area by the patient, while the practitioner maintains firm pressure to break up or release the damaged tissue. The soft tissues will then begin to move again with full function. Dr. Fluitt’s track record of success makes him a preferred provider for patients searching for Active Release Technique in Austin, Texas.

Active Release can lead to significant improvement within 4-5 sessions. ART is covered by insurance and is also available for $80 at the self-pay rate, as part of your full Manual Therapy or Physical Therapy treatment.
