Active Release Technique (ART) is the Gold Standard in soft-tissue treatment. Dr. Craig is Full Body certified in this therapy and uses it daily to improve muscle function in his patients. ART is used primarily to treat adhesions, or ‘sticky areas’ between adjacent muscles that alter the ability to move muscles and joints properly. Breaking up these adhesions allows for pain and tension to be eliminated and strength and mobility restored. Often, joints will continue to lose their mobility due to chronic muscle problems that are not treated; ART changes this!
Dr. Craig has been utilizing this treatment for more than 4 years and currently serves on the Occupational Health team for a manufacturing company in Lincoln, Illinois. ART has drawn considerable popularity because of the tremendous and quick improvements experienced by some of the top athletes in the world. ART care is sought out nationally, particularly for extreme athletes (marathoners and Tri-athletes) but is effective for those suffering from a number of muscle pains.
