Chiropractic Active Release Technique in Kansas City
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue structures can become adhered to one another, which can create a dense, tough tissue inside the body. For our patients, this often results in musculoskeletal pain. When adhesions (often known as trigger points) form, they interfere and alter the proper motion of the muscles and joints. Luckily, the chiropractors at F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic are local experts in Active Release Technique in Kansas City. Collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes often use A.R.T. in their soft tissue treatment!

Chiropractic A.R.T. can help reduce and/or eliminate musculoskeletal dysfunction and pain associated with, but not limited to:

How Active Release Techniques Work
Chiropractic A.R.T. is the process of manually assessing soft tissue structures and applying a specific treatment protocol. There are over 500 specific techniques unique to A.R.T. Each protocol consists of applying precise tension and compression to the designated tissue.
Once we apply the tension and compression, the patient will actively perform a specific movement or the doctor will take them passively through the movement.
