Active Release Techniques® providers use their hands to assess and treat areas of dense, thickened and tight tissues. After a detailed examination, the therapist will apply a precise tension to the abnormal tissue in combination with a particular movement that promotes lengthening of the soft tissue and scar tissue break-up. 

This technique is most beneficial when added with other modalities and specific rehabilitative exercises to ensure that the effects are permanent.

Functional Range Release technique, or FR Release ® is an advanced, and comprehensive system of soft tissue assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation used by some of the most highly regarded manual therapists around the world. FR Technique ® is a revolutionary soft-tissue treatment and rehabilitation management system.

How Does it work?

When you overuse a muscle, micro-trauma occurs at the cellular level, this results in scar tissue and tight fibrous bands that can limit the mobility of the tissue. 

Also, it can result in the nerves being compressed or trapped and the blood vessels unable to deliver blood and oxygen to the tissues. 

These occurrences can stimulate pain and other problematic symptoms; once the tissues are released, normal tissue gliding can occur with movement, and therefore help eliminate pain.
