Overview

The course entitled Active Release Techniques ® Soft Tissue Management System is designed to provide instruction in anatomy, palpation, and treatment of soft tissues of the body and the articulations that they affect. The spine course includes 76 treatment/diagnosis protocols, which include 20 nerve entrapment protocols.

Manual techniques are utilized to move the tissues and joints while under tension. The system allows for relative motion between the tissues and articulations. Evaluation and treatment occur simultaneously.

The course emphasizes the manipulation of the neuro-musculoskeletal system to diagnose and correct alterations in tissue texture, tension, movement, and function. All treatments protocols are designed to correct these alterations assist in making articular adjustments easier to accomplish, and to shorten the treatment regimen required to resolve a case. In this way, it follows traditional chiropractic paradigms and methods.
