Active Release Techniques Therapy

Active Release Techniques:
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a patented soft tissue treatment system invented by Colorado Springs, CO Chiropractor Mike Leahy. Active Release Therapy is a form of deep tissue work that involves the muscles, tendons, fascia (covers muscle), ligaments, and nerves. It is used to treat acute or chronic injuries, repetitive strain injury and nerve entrapment’s like carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica. ART is also used before and after surgery to reduce scar tissue formation and build up.

What conditions can ART help?
ART can alleviate headaches, TMJ pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, hand pain, thumb pain, hip pain, knee pain, calf pain, ankle pain, and foot pain. ART also works on common injuries like; ITB Syndrome, Runners Knee, Shin Splints, Plantar Fasciitis, Rotator Cuff Injuries, Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow, Piriformis Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Sciatica. ART also can remove scar tissue build up after surgery, and scar tissue build up from joint replacements, instead of going through painful and sometimes risky manipulations under Anesthesia.

How does ART work?
ART works to break up and remove scar tissue deep within and between muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. ART treatment is a hands on treatment where the doctor contacts the injured muscle, joint, ligament, or nerves with his thumb or fingers, the tissue is then shortened and moved through a range of motion while a tension is held over the injured structure. This breaks up the scared or fibrotic tissue present while reducing pain and improving range of motion.

How long will it take?
The average number of ART treatments for all conditions ranges between 5-15 visits per condition depending on severity and duration of symptoms. Typically treatments are 10-15 minutes long, and patients should bring shorts for lower back, hip, knee, ankle or foot injuries. For neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand injuries a tank top is recommended.

Dr. Mike Leahy talks about being a part of a winning Superbowl team on the Denver Broncos Medical Staff

This is a little inside bit from the Active Release Technique provider network where Dr. Leahy, the founder of ART reaches out to let us know how things are going up at the big office in Colorado.  Sounds like a lot of fun treating athletes on the Superbowl Champion Denver Broncos.

From a Sports Illustrated write up on Peyton Manning:

Today the Broncos still employ Roskopf and Michael Leahy, a Colorado Springs–based specialist in another branch of muscular science, Active Release therapy, to see players weekly—but Manning piles on more. On Mondays he has a 75-minute deep-tissue massage and a 30-minute stretch; on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays he sees Roskopf for painful but effective treatments at his office; and then on game days he spends 20 to 30 minutes with Leahy for more work.

“There are gurus all over,” says Manning. “Tom Brady’s got a guru. If you get to this age and you’re trying to keep playing, you need help. Everybody has a masseuse, but most guys do more now. Last year, when I flew Roskopf to Indianapolis, I was paying him what he’d make all day for his appointments in Denver. But if he helps me extend my career by two years, with two more years of salary, it’s well worth it.”

Manning’s right that he’s not alone. “I get Active Release therapy every Wednesday,” says 35-year-old Chargers linebacker Takeo Spikes, “to go along with massage and chiropractic on Monday and Friday. Soft-tissue care has been huge for my career.”

If that all seems like a little much, don’t knock it. For Spikes, who hasn’t missed a game since November 2009, and for Manning, who looks more and more like Peyton in his prime, the maddening attention to detail is paying dividends.
