ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE (ART)
Dr. Hannawi is a certified full body ART provider which includes the upper extremity, lower extremity and spine. Active release technique (ART) is a state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
We practice active release technique as a part of our massage therapy services. A few conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART at Elite Spine are: Sciatica, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, achilles pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, and patellar tendonitis.
Our approach is based on the functional model and the dynamic use of manual medicine into physical therapy and rehabilitation. Our Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation experience with Manual Therapy, Instrument Assisted Cross Friction Technique, Therapeutic Modalities and Therapeutic Exercise enables us to treat Post-operative procedures, sports injuries, orthopedic and neurological disorders and general pain. The practice philosophy is that optimal health and performance can be attained through proper stability by enabling correct function via mobility of joints and corresponding muscles. Thus through the proper balance of exercise, nutrition, and care of the body’s framework, we will improve a variety of patient’s conditions.
