What is the Active Release Technique (ART)?

Vital Wellness Center has been the leader in ART on the Treasure Coast. From The Iroman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii to regional Crossfit Competitions we are sough after providers to both professional and elite athletes!

Using ART, we can often resolve stubborn chronic pain and injuries that have persiste through medical and physical treatment for years. ART is so effective for soft tissue injuries because the treatment makes direct changes to the structure and function of muscle, fascia and nerve tissue. Rather than try to reduce inflammation using drugs or reducing irritation to soft tissue with surgery, ART can alter the biomechanics of the body and resolve the pain more quickly and more efficiently.

The ART website states:

"ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles."

Treatment of Pain and Injury in Port St. Lucie FL

At Vital Wellness Center treating pain and injury is as much guided by the assessment of functional movement as it is by the pain or symptoms present. If our diagnosis determines that your problem is something we can treat successfully, we will then discover the original cause of that injury. Often we find an underlying movement system dysfunction causing undue stress or injury to the painful tissue. This allows us to treat the painful tissue and also to change or correct the movement dysfunction. By addressing both the pain and the dysfunction, we can do so much more than temporarily alleviating pain, we can permanently eliminate the cause.

Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

Vital Wellness Centers protocol for treating pain and injury utilizes many forms of treatment. Our methods to treat soft-tissue injury and correct movement dysfunction in Port St. Lucie FL are what we specialize in.
