ART (Active Release Technique)

Active Release Technique was founded over 30 years ago by Dr. Michael Leahy, a Chiropractor in Colorado. Since then it has grown to be recognized as the “gold standard in soft tissue treatment.”


Soft tissue includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. The ART system has over 500 specific protocols for each soft tissue structure in the body. This ensures that providers can treat the root cause of the problem, and ultimately that our patients will get the top quality care that is possible. The Active Release Technique program is broken into 3 parts, upper extremity, lower extremity, and spine. Practitioners that complete all three are titled “whole body certified” in ART. Some of the conditions that Active Release Technique is well known for treating include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Whiplash
  • Sciatica
  • Shin Splints
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Active Release Technique is used at the most elite levels of athletic competition. All 32 NFL teams have an ART provider, and Ironman triathalons have ART providers at their races to provide their athletes with the best care in order to optimize performance.

Dr. Juan Gloria is certified in Active Release Technique.
