Active Release Technique is a very popular myofascial release technique that is known for its effectiveness in treating muscular and soft-tissue injuries. The purpose or goal of Active Release Technique is to remove or “break up” scar tissue in stiff, over-used, injured muscles. The treatment is also designed to treat dysfunction in ligaments, tendons and their impact on other tissues like nerves, cartilage and fascia.
As with the Graston Technique, Active Release Technique has been granted a medical patent. It is a very structured form of myofascial release that is utilized by professional and Olympic athletes worldwide. In order to become an Active Release practitioner, each provider must complete extensive hands-on instruction and testing. A certified provider of Active Release Technique is trained to palpate and treat more than 300 muscular and fascial injuries in addition to over 100 nerve entrapments. Active Release Technique providers are required to maintain their qualifications as Active Release providers on a yearly basis.
