To get the best results, you must stay fresh on the best methods.  For this reason, Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine spends the money and time to stay Active Release Technique Certified.

Active Release Technique or ART® is a patented, state of the art, movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It is a high profile technique utilized by professional athletes worldwide due to its effectiveness and consistency in results. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fascitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.

The common denominator in all of these conditions is overuse. Overuse, either instantly (pulls or tears) or over a long period (repetitive motions or poor posture), causes your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. Scar tissue tightens up areas in the body that need to move freely. Tension on joints causes arthritis, tension on tendons causes tendonitis and tension on nerves causes conditions such as carpal tunnel.

At Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine, we have honed our ART skills to both find and treat the scarred area. Treatment combines any of over 500 unique hands on moves, which utilize precise tension with specific patient movements.


Overuse (posture, keyboarding, ankle sprain) leads to Scar Tissue.
