INTRODUCING ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES
Release Your Pain presents ART (Active Release Techniques) as an innovative and effective approach to addressing such common repetitive strain injuries as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, knee and shoulder injuries, and back pain.
Based on case studies, the book shows how ART practitioners are able to locate and break down scar tissue and adhesions that cause pain, stiffness, weakness, numbness, and physical dysfunctions associated with repetitive strain injuries. Topics include how and why these injuries occur, and how non-invasive methods succeed where others fail. Each chapter includes black and white photo sequences of therapy techniques, specific exercises, and stretches to help resolve these conditions.
