What is causing the pain?Soft tissue conditions often do not show up in radiographic studies. When soft tissue has been injured, or even chronically tight, it forms scar tissue. While necessary for healing, scar tissue may “stick” to adjacent structures restricting range of motion and may cause compression over nerves or blood vessels. This condition alters the texture of soft tissue, which an experienced ART® provider can diagnose and treat.
Who can benefit from ART®?
Since an ART® provider is qualified to diagnose and treat over 400 structures, we see a broad range of injuries and conditions. ART® is successful for professional and amateur athletes, people injured in auto accidents or at work, and people who just work hard and hurt. Conditions typically treated with ART® include rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, shin splints, carpal tunnel and headaches to name a few.
