How ART Works — How Does A Doctor Perform ART?ART works by using friction and tension to tear adhesions away from the body, and it does so without having to cut or break the skin (it is non-surgical). The pain goes away and the proper mechanics of the shoulder will return.
What Dr. Leahy (the founder of ART) discovered was that an enormous amount of TENSION is needed to pull apart the 'welding' that the adhesion has formed on the rotator cuff and surrounding shoulder muscles. And here's the beautiful thing: once the muscles have been freed, they stay that way! They don't spontaneously glue back together; rather, the body metabolizes the broken-up scar tissue.
This is where the "art" comes into play. Active Release 'un-glues' the adhesions, but the ART-Certified doctor must be able to do two basic things:
Once the structural damages (adhesions) have been located within the shoulder and surrounding tissues, the Active Release treatments can begin to 'release' the adhesions and start the true healing process within your shoulder. The pain will begin to decrease and your ability to do more activities will increase.
